Language can be a means of solidarity, resistance, and identity within a culture At present, two constructs explicate the link between language and identity. Language and identity: national, ethnic, religious / John E. Joseph. p. cm. Includes bibliographical references and index. ISBN. 0–––2 (cloth) — ISBN. The language spoken by somebody and his or her identity as a speaker of this Language and Identity: The Handbook of Sociolinguistics.

While power in language learning research has traditionally focused on the powerful native speaker and the relatively disempowered learner, this book studies the inverse, where elites are the language learners. The author analyses the life histories of four white South Africans who acquired isiXhosa during the apartheid years. The book offers insights into relationships between language, power, race, identity and change in their stories and in the broader context of apartheid and post-apartheid South Africa, with its conflicted history and disparities. This book should appeal to researchers interested in studies of language acquisition, narrative and identity, as well as those more broadly interested in South African history, multilingualism and race studies. Review: The stories in this book — stories of multilingualism, race, identity and power — are vividly retold, sensitively interpreted, and are framed by relevant theory. The outcome is an immensely readable and informative work, unique in that it tells readers about the experiences of elites learning an indigenous language in a rigidly divided socio-political context. These stories certainly hit home. Her interests include language learning, identity and teacher education. Readership Level:.

The key concepts 2nd Edition , London: Routledge. Human languages are those used by humans for communication. All human languages are both natural and artificial. Artificial because all human languages use arbitrary artificial signs — words - and because they are manmade.

They are all natural due to their deep grammatical structure. The fact that every human language is capable of being learned by any human being proves that they are all natural. Languages such as Esperanto, pidgins and creoles are normal human languages in the same way as are ethnic languages, dialects and other forms of speech. The basic requirement for any linguistic system to be a human language is that it be in regular use by a community.

Human beings created writing, and then states, and the states established state languages which differ from other spontaneous languages by being standardized. Standard languages are regulated by spelling and pronunciation models, grammar and dictionaries, and they are written.

Therefore, changes in such languages are slower than in spontaneous language.
