Riddling and enculturation : a glance at the cerebral child by John Holmes McDowell( Book )

2 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper attempts to illustrate with concrete data that riddles serve as a didactic device to sharpen the wits of young children. The riddle is described as a verbal routine which adapts the interrogative system of a speech community to purposes of play. Riddles concerning motion or locomotion of animals, machines and toys were collected in a single riddling session, from three Chicano children aged 5-7. The output of these neophyte riddles is discussed in the context of the acquisition and refinement of cognitive categories, and a folk taxonomy focused on the semantic domain of locomotion is suggested. Riddling is viewed as a didactic mechanism conducive to experimentation with received notions of order, and elaboration of novel cognitive orders. In riddling, at various stages, children learn to formulate culturally acceptable classifications; to articulate classifications at variance with cultural conventions; and finally to assess language and classification as arbitrary instruments reflecting only partially the continuous texture of experience.

Language and social class : pronouns of address in Swedish by Christina Bratt Paulston( Book )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Swedish address system is in a state of rapid change. Consequently, Swedes are now more than ever sensitive to the seeming lack of generally accepted rules of usage. This paper attempts to codify the rules for usage of the personal pronouns "du" and "ni." In so doing, it finds that "du" may be used to express either solidarity or intimacy-familiarity, while "ni" exists in old peasant form as well as in current polite and impolite forms. Generally speaking, one can describe the Swedish address system adequately only if one recognizes that Swedish social classes have different rules due to different semantics (i.e., the covariation between the pronoun used and the objective relationship existing between speaker and addressee) of the pronouns "du" and "ni."

Code switching in Lady Chatterly's lover by Roger W Shuy( Book )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The language or dialect used in a conversation will vary according to the social situation, the identity of the participants, and the conversational topic. Bilinguals will often switch languages to suit the topic or the listener; persons who speak both standard and dialect forms of a language will use the standard in formal conversation and the dialect when discussing local issues with local people. This linguistic code-switching theory is applied to D.H. Lawrence's "Lady Chatterly's Lover" to examine the author's use of language in the novel. Several conversations involving Lady Chatterly, Sir Clifford Chatterly, Mellors the gamekeeper, and others are analyzed. It is observed that Mellors, the only character to use code-switching regularly, speaks standard English with Sir Clifford and others, but often uses a Derbyshire dialect with Lady Chatterly to convey intimacy, to confuse her, or to exert power over her. He alternates between standard English and Derbyshire to suit his purpose. That Lawrence employed this linguistic switching consciously is illustrated by his accuracy and his authorial comments on language. The theory of code-switching and similar linguistic developments may be of some use in literary analysis. (Ck)

Language use in a Chicano community : a sociolinguistic approach by Lucía Elías-Olivares( Book )

1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The linguistic varieties in use in the Chicano speech community of East Austin (Texas) and the attitudes toward them were studied. Data were collected from field work done in a section of Austin that comprised over half of the Chicano population. The section was a practically segregated urban neighborhood and somewhat isolated from other ethnic influences; the only Anglos were those who owned shops in the area, but lived elsewhere. From the 92 residents who were interviewed, it was found that East Austin speakers had access to a language repertoire that included English and 4 varieties of Spanish--Northern Mexican Spanish, Popular Spanish, Español Mixtureado or code-switching, and Calo. Therefore, the study took into account the community's language repertoire and the varieties that this repertoire encompassed as well as some of the different social functions served by these varieties. English was felt to be superior to the vernacular, especially for second- and third-generation speakers. Those experiencing upward mobility preferred to speak English and looked down on the local varieties, declaring they did not use them. A feeling of linguistic inferiority was particularly strong among older informants; the younger speakers seemed to express ethnic pride in their ways of speaking. (NQ)
