This is what Rampton’s work on sociolinguistic crossing has made clear, particularly in those moments of dialect stylization that he deals with. ” The latter points up social differences whereas the former seeks to obscure them. Generalizations about social trends are difficult to support in this area. But it may prove to be the case that, in the socially and generically complex and increasingly reflexive social circumstances that late modernity offers us, identity work may become less and less a matter of multiple ownerships and transferred allegiances.
The variationist project has partly been to find methodological means of accessing the untrammelled vernacular in all of its purity and regularity, and Widow Twanky’s dialect performance therefore stands well outside of the canon. In fact, the interface between variationist sociolinguistics and authenticity is an interesting and productive one, and one that is beginning to be critically explored (Bucholtz 2003; Coupland 2003). Without opening up such issues in detail here, we can nevertheless consider ways in which staged and stylized dialect performances can become interpretable as identity work, provided that analysis respects the various levels of discursive framing I introduced earlier.
By Chambers 1995 and many others). Variationist sociolinguistics has typically taken a static view of social identity, presupposing the integrity of speech communities and working with simple demographic criteria for community membership. Focusing most sharply on the descriptive facts of social distribution and inferable mechanisms of linguistic change, variationist sociolinguistics has been less interested in dialect variation as a locus of social identity work in situated W E 21 interaction.
