Should Quechua Be Used In Puno's Rural Schools?, Nancy H. Hornberger Apr 1986

Should Quechua Be Used In Puno's Rural Schools?, Nancy H. Hornberger

Working Papers in Educational Linguistics (WPEL)

This paper speculates on the possibilities for planning for language maintenance in one particular case. It considers the pros and cons of using Quechua in schools serving Quechua-speaking communities in rural highland Puno, Peru, from the point of view of its bearing on Quechua language maintenance.

The paper is based on a two-year ethnographic sociolinguistic study in two communities of Puno. The study compared uses Quechua and Spanish in the communities and their schools, one of which participated in a bilingual education project. It also compared attitudes of community members toward the two languages. The paper draws from the findings ...


The Bulge: A Theory Of Speech Behavior And Social Distance, Nessa Wolfson Apr 1986

The Bulge: A Theory Of Speech Behavior And Social Distance, Nessa Wolfson

Working Papers in Educational Linguistics (WPEL)

The purpose of this paper is threefold. Firstly. I want to outline the major ways in which the study of rules of speaking can provide insights into the norms and values of a speech community. Secondly. I will discuss ways in which the same material can provide information about the interaction process and the situations in which interlocutors negotiate their relationships with one another. Lastly, I will put forth a theory concerning patterns of interaction within a general middle class American speech community.

A Context For Revision: An Ethnographic Perspective, Linda Brodkey Apr 1986

A Context For Revision: An Ethnographic Perspective, Linda Brodkey

Working Papers in Educational Linguistics (WPEL)

For more than a decade, the field of composition has been studying writing as a process. More specifically, process studies are expressed in terms of cognitive psychology, the social science most prepared in the early seventies to focus on individual writers as they wrote. On the one hand, studies of writers' cognitive processes have shown the value of attending not only to what people write, but also to how they go about doing so. Such research, for instance, has made it possible to imagine writing as a moment to moment affair, during which writers shift their attention from one cognitive ...

English Interference Loans As A Resource In The Functional Expansion Of St. Lucian Creole, Steve Jones Apr 1984

English Interference Loans As A Resource In The Functional Expansion Of St. Lucian Creole, Steve Jones

Working Papers in Educational Linguistics (WPEL)

This paper is a study of language contact between French Creole and English on the Caribbean island of St. Lucia. Although much of the discussion is related to grammatical questions, the implications go beyond issues in descriptive linguistics. The nature of English-Creole contact is an important question for St. Lucian education and social life in general, especially given the increased promotion of Creole as a medium of contact between the St. Lucian government and people, and the possibilities of the future use of Creole as a medium of education and literacy. The study gives some evidence that English-Creole contact in ...


Repairs In Conversation: A Demonstration Of Competence, Jessica Williams Apr 1984

Repairs In Conversation: A Demonstration Of Competence, Jessica Williams

Working Papers in Educational Linguistics (WPEL)

Introduction

The field of speech errors and repairs is a relatively new one. Repairs have been studied from a number of anoles, notably by Scheqloff, Jefferson and Sacks (1977) and Jefferson (1974). Scheqloff et al. saw merit in investigating repairs because of their role as a "self-riqhtinq mechanism for the organization of language in social interaction." They focused, for the first time, on the repair rather than the error. Jefferson suggested in her paper that repairs miqht have an even more important role than the correctional one--that they are in fact, an interactional resource. The use of certain phrases, lexical ...
