Deutsch, Doyc or Doitsch? Chatters as Languagers--The Case of a German-Turkish Chat Room
Hinnenkamp, Volker
International Journal of Multilingualism, v5 n3 p253-275 Aug 2008
The paper looks at the process of online-languaging of adolescents with a migratory and ethnic Turkish background in a diasporic chat room. The multiple resources and voices used are analysed. One particular example is looked at more thoroughly to illustrate the process of languaging and how it is legitimised by the chatters themselves. Finally, it is briefly looked at the commitment involved in the languaging and why this process is rather one-sided German-inclined. (Contains 14 notes.)
