Socio- And Stylolinguistic Perspectives on American Indian English Texts (Native American Studies)

Socio- And Stylolinguistic Perspectives on American Indian English Texts (Native American Studies) by Guillermo Bartelt
English | 2001 | ISBN: 0773473467 | 158 Pages | PDF | 2.36 MB

Part 1 of this volume interprets cultural meaning as revealed in prosodic and temporal phenomena in spoken English discourse data. The emerging theme is the (re)construction of American Indian tribal indentities in terms of a newly created intertribal consciousness in an urban setting. Part 2 introduces an ethnography of writing approach not only as a contribution to the intersection of linguistics and literature in general but as a valid approach to American Indian texts in particular.
