Sociolinguistics from the Periphery

By Sari Pietikäinen, Alexandra Jaffe, Helen Kelly-Holmes, Nik Coupland

Sociolinguistics from the Periphery "presents a fascinating book about change: shifting political, economic and cultural conditions; ephemeral, sometimes even seasonal, multilingualism; and altered imaginaries for minority and indigenous languages and their users"

Summary:   ''UND ICH SO'' OFTEN OCCURS IN STORYTELLING, PAIRED WITH SOME KIND OF GESTURE OR VOCAL SOUND EFFECT ''TURNING THE QUOTE INTO AN ENACTMENT OR
PERFORMANCE'' (GOLATO, 2000, PG.31). A COUPLE RESPONDENTS HAVE SUGGESTED THAT THIS QUOTATIVE IS BECOMING ACCEPTABLE TO USE IN OTHER ENVIRONMENTS. WHILE ''UND ICH SO'' IS
MOST OFTEN ATTRIBUTED TO TEENAGERS, GOLATO'S STUDY FOUND EVIDENCE OF THIS QUOTATIVES USE BY COLLEGE-AGE SPEAKERS AND THOSE FROM THIRTY TO FIFTY YEARS OF AGE.
