Lippi green

Lippi-Green

  • language is – among other things – a flexible and constantly flexing tool for the emblematic marking of social allegiances (63)

  • Ideology: the promotion of the needs and interests of a dominant group or class at the expense of marginalized groups, by means of disinformation and misrepresentation of those non-dominant groups (64, paraphrasing Eagleton)


Lippi green1

Lippi-Green

  • standard language ideology: a bias toward an abstracted, idealized, homogeneous spoken language which is imposed and maintained by dominant bloc institutions and which names as its model the written language, but which is drawn primarily form the spoken language of the upper middle class (64)

  • language subordination:

    • devaluation of all that is not (or does not seek to be) politically, culturally, or socially mainstream

    • validation of the social and linguistic values of the dominant institutions (65)

  • Communicative burden: responsibility in conversation to “collaborate in the establishment of new information” (70, from Clark’s cognitive model of the communicative act)


Anzaldua

Anzaldua

  • What is Anzaldua’s argument?

  • What is the relationship between language and identity?
