Description

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.

Contents

Part 1 The ethnography of speaking: syncretism in cognitive perspective; the discourse of intertribalism; invocative discourse; rhetorical processes; cultural constraints on metacognition. Part 2 The ethnography of metacognition: discourses of assimilationism; interlingual productions as ethnolect; Indian English in the Native American novel; the discourse of geopiety; conclusions; appendix.
