Questioning Identity: The Case of One Second-Language Learner.
Rymes, Betsy; Pash, Diana
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v32 n3 p276-300 Sep 2001
Examined how one second language learner answered questions in a mainstream second grade classroom, analyzing two conflicting "language games." Results found that the second language learner was often adept at "passing" as knowing, but that he achieved this identity-preserving expertise at the expense of an understanding of classroom lessons.
