Linguistic Norms and Adult Roles in Play and Serious Frames
Moller, Janus Spindler; Jorgensen, Jens Normann
Linguistics and Education: An International Research Journal, v22 n1 p68-78 Mar 2011
This paper deals with the ways in which minority students in the Danish public school system bring mono-lingually based norms into their poly-lingual peer group interaction. In sequential micro-analyses of interaction we show how the students use the voice of an authority in their reproduction and negotiation of linguistic norms. We base our analyses on the Bakhtinian concept of "double-voicing," the Goffmanian concept of "keying" and Tholander's concept of "subteaching." We discuss in detail the relation between the local practices of the students and the linguistic norms expressed in broader society, for instance in newspaper editorials and government papers.
