Stance, Style, and the Linguistic Individual

Stance, Style, and the Linguistic Individual

(p.29) 2 Stance, Style, and the Linguistic Individual

Barbara Johnstone

Oxford University Press

Previous research has explored how styles can come to be associated with interactional situations or social identities. In some language-ideological contexts, styles associated with individuals can also become ethnographically and interactionally relevant. This chapter uses a discourse-analytic case study of one individual's talk and writing across genres, together with interview, biographical, and historical research about the sociolinguistic and language-ideological contexts, to illustrate how repeated patterns of stancetaking can come together as a style associated with a particular individual.

Keywords:   stance, style, individual, Barbara Jordan, legal, political, oratory, debate, African-American, ideology, ethos
