Abstract:

This study aims to combine tools from the fields of Language Ideologies and Conversation Analysis, despite their differences, in an analysis of metalinguistic discourse in research interviews. The goal is to show what Conversation Analysis can offer the study of language ideologies. To this end, the study investigates how interaction shapes and (re)constructs explicit descriptions, statements, evaluations, etc. of language. Single-case analyses of phenomena typically of interest in the field of Language Ideologies are performed to shed light on how talk about language is constructed and shaped in research interviews carried out in the Rumanian Banat. The analysis of language ideologies, such as ‘language standards’, is thus connected to the analysis of interactional structures, such as repair. In general, the analyses show how talk about language is produced and designed for the turn-by-turn structures of interaction. The analyses also highlight the intersubjective character of talk about language.
