Parada, Maryann – Journal of Language, Identity, and Education, 2013
The effects of birth order have been debated in many disciplines and have been shown to be important for a number of outcomes.

This article reports on two sets of data collected among Spanish…

Rivers, Damian J.; Ross, Andrew S. – Journal of Language, Identity, and Education, 2013
English as a Foreign Language (EFL) education within the context of Japan is firmly underpinned by sociohistorical constructions of racial difference and racial hierarchies that have considerable influence on contemporary student and institutional attitudes. Embracing these sociohistorical foundations, this article adopts experimental procedures…

Armstrong, Timothy Currie – Journal of Language, Identity, and Education, 2013
The last speakers of an endangered language often include many individuals who have acquired less than full productive proficiency in the language, language users Nancy Dorian (1977) called semi-speakers.

Baurain, Bradley – Journal of Language, Identity, and Education, 2012
In the field of teacher knowledge, "beliefs" is a large term narrowly constructed. The beliefs theorized, researched, and discussed are beliefs about technique, methodology, curriculum, classroom management, professional development, and similarly. Spiritual and religious beliefs are for the most part omitted. This study argues that they should be…

This article draws from ethnographic data collected during a 23-month--language socialization study of mixed-status Mexican families living in the New Latino Diaspora. The analysis focuses on the ways in which siblings in one family talk about citizenship during a discursive event that I call the Planning for the Future Routine. The findings show…

Bokayev, Baurzhan; Zharkynbekova, Sholpan; Nurseitova, Khalida; Bokayeva, Ainash; Akzhigitova, Assel; Nurgalieva, Saniya – Journal of Language, Identity, and Education, 2012
The issues of social, cultural, and language adjustment and the integration of repatriates into the Kazakhstani society are crucial factors in maintaining a stable society. The complicated process of self-identification of ethnic Kazakhs is a major aspect of their sociolinguistic "penetration" into Kazakh society. In this work we…

Barrett, Catrice – Journal of Language, Identity, and Education, 2012
The linguistic dimensions of globalized hip-hop cannot be understood simply as a byproduct of English as an American export. As hip-hop mobilizes, it is common (and arguably necessary) for global hip-hop communities to struggle through purposeful, semiotically rooted dialectics over what constitutes "authentic" and respectable forms of…

Bargueno, David P. – Journal of Language, Identity, and Education, 2012
School language policies stand at the nexus of identity politics and human rights in contemporary South Africa. Since 1996, litigation on school language policies has been resolved on the basis of language rights. Courts have emphasized that the mere mention of single-medium schools in the constitution in no way privileges these institutions over…

Ehala, Martin – Journal of Language, Identity, and Education, 2012
This article proposes that acculturation orientations are related to two sets of cultural values: utilitarianism (Ut) and traditionalism (Tr). While utilitarian values enhance assimilation, traditional values support language and identity maintenance. It is proposed that the propensity to either end of this value opposition can be measured by an…

Blum, Avram; Johnson, Eric J. – Journal of Language, Identity, and Education, 2012
This discussion draws attention to the discriminatory efforts of policymakers in Arizona to professionally marginalize public school teachers deemed to have an accent. In addition to debunking the linguistic and pedagogic validity of this policy, we emphasize the role of the media in the (re)construction and justification of language ideologies…
