Reconceptualising "Identity Slippage": Additional Language Learning and (L2) Identity Development
Armour, William
Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, v30 n4 p311-326 Jul 2009
This paper reconsiders the theoretical concept of "identity slippage" by considering a detailed exegesis of three model conversations taught to learners of Japanese as an additional language. To inform my analysis of these conversations and how they contribute to identity slippage, I have used the work of the systemic-functional linguist Jay Lemke and the educational linguist James Paul gee as well as using the guiding principle of semogenesis. It is suggested that the three interrelated frames of correctness, norms, and conformity need to be accounted for in a discussion of how learning an additional language impacts of identity development. (Contains 3 tables, 1 figure and 7 notes.)
