1. Warren, Joseph Rizal. Linguistic constructions of identity in the discourse of American international students studying at Stellenbosch University : a positioning theory account.

Degree: MPhil, General Linguistics, 2012, Stellenbosch University

ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The number of students studying outside of their country of birth is growing rapidly. While the United States of America only sends a small number of students abroad every year, high profile institutions and individuals have argued that studying abroad has become an important developmental experience in the globalized world. This effects (and will continue to effect) countries that send students as well as those that accept such students. While it is recognised that study abroad is both a business and an educational endeavour, the relative importance accorded each facet is disputed by those working and researching in the field. Some argue that to reduce study abroad to a ‗business endeavour‘ would be to remove the quintessential benefits of the experience. Nevertheless, the field (along with all education) is moving to embrace neoliberalisation. Research into the effect of this mass movement is sparse, scarcer still is research into the actual effects on students participating in this movement. This study is an analysis of the linguistic identity construction of American students shortly after a semester abroad at Stellenbosch University. Forty seven surveys were analysed to demonstrate how the way in which students construct their identities is influenced by broader practices in the field. The research shows how identities are co-constructed and suggests that the field of study abroad needs to be critically self-reflective in order to mitigate the potential negative effects of the practices they use.

AFRIKAANSE OPSOMMING: Die aantal studente wat buite hul land van geboorte studeer is vinnig besig om toe te neem. Alhoewel die Verenigde State van Amerika jaarliks slegs ʼn klein aantal studente oorsee stuur, beweer hoë profiel institute en individue dat ʼn buitelandse studiegeleentheid ʼn belangrike ontwikkelingsondervinding is in ʼn toenemend geglobaliseerde wêreld. Dit beïnvloed (en sal aanhou om te beïnvloed) beide die lande wat studente stuur en die lande waarnatoe die studente gestuur word. Hoewel dit algemeen erken word dat ʼn buitelandse studiegeleentheid beide ʼn besigheid en ʼn opvoedkundige aangeleentheid is, betwyfel navorsers en die wat in die praktyk werk die mate waartoe beide aspekte bydra tot die praktyke wat gebruik word. Sommige beweer dat om ʼn buitelandse studie geleentheid te reduseer tot ʼn besigheidsaangeleentheid, die ervaring van sy wesenlike voordele ontneem. Ten spyte van die kritiek word toenemend meer waarde geheg in die veld van 'buitelandse studie geleenthede' (saam met ander opvoedkundige kontekste) aan neoliberalisme. Navorsing wat die invloed van neoliberalisme op onderrigpraktyke ondersoek is raar, nog raarder is navorsing wat die effek van neoliberalisme op studente ondersoek. Hierdie studie analiseer die linguistiese identiteitskonstruksie van Amerikaanse studente kort na hul ʼn buitelandse studiegeleentheid van ʼn semester by Stellenbosch Universiteit voltooi het. Sewe en veertig opnames is geanaliseer om te demonstreer hoe die manier waarop studente hul identiteit…

2. Roman, Samantha. What Kaaps brings to the table : a sociolinguistic analysis of the intersection between language, food and identity in Vannie Kaap memes.

Degree: MA, General Linguistics, 2019, Stellenbosch University

ENGLISH ABSTRACT: This thesis examines food and language as a related topic. Gerhardt (2013) claims that every language group has its unique traditional food and, as such, this thesis investigates this claim with specific reference to non-standard linguistic varieties. I analysed memes1 from the Vannie Kaap Facebook page with the purpose of identifying the kinds of identities constructed when using Kaaps to talk about food. The theories of Pennycook (2004) and Butler (1990), which guided my thesis, were used to examine the ways in which language is used to perform different identities. Following this is a discussion on the methodology and data collection instruments. I used thematic analysis to analyse the different text in the memes. This thesis also drew on sociolinguistic theory which is particularly useful when analysing society’s effect on language, including concepts such as ‘context’, ‘cultural norms’ and ‘expectation’ on the way language is used. The theme that became apparent included how food and the consumption thereof was used to highlight issues of social positions within society. Other themes included the significance of food within Kaaps culture, and comparing foods as a strategy to address challenging issues in society. Also relevant to the discussion is the theme of Kaaps as a culture of consumption. My findings suggest that non-standard varieties indeed exhibit their own unique traditional foodways. I further note a generational shift, that is, a shift away from traditional, home-cooked meals to the purchasing of traditional fast foods. My findings highlight the significance and creativity that Kaaps speakers possess by using their language to make political and social commentary through comparing political and social issues to food. These kinds of strategies of resistance against societal norms are what lead to emancipation from stigmas, thus providing speakers with a sense of solidarity and belonging. Taken together, the memes depict how Kaaps speakers use food and language as a means of liberation, emancipation and empowerment.

AFRIKAANSE OPSOMMING: Hierdie tesis ondersoek kos en taal as verwante onderwerpe. Aangesien Gerhardt (2013) voorstel dat elke taalgroep ook hul eie unieke tradisionele kos het, word hierdie voorstel ondersoek met spesifieke verwysing na nie-standaard taalvariëteite. Ek het spesifiek die memes wat voorgekom het op die Vannie Kaap Facebook blad geanaliseer met die doel om te ondersoek hoe Kaaps gebruik word om identiteit te konstrueer, wanneer daar oor kos gepraat word. Die teorieë van Pennycook (2004) en Butler (1990), wat my tesis gelei het, was gebruik om te ondersoek hoe taal gebruik word om identiteit te “perform”. Na my teoretiese bespreking volg die hoofstuk oor metodologie en data insamelings metodes. Ek het tematiese analise gebruik om die memes te analiseer. Ek het ook gebruik gemaak van sosiolinguistiese teorie om my temas te interpreteer. Die temas wat ek geïdentifiseer het lê veral klem op die gebruikspatrone rondom kos en hoe kos gebruik word om mense te…

3. Daubney, Anna-Marie. Language biographies and language repertoires : changes in language identity of indigenous African language speakers in a town in the Northern Cape.

Degree: MPhil, General Linguistics, 2014, Stellenbosch University

ENGLISH ABSTRACT: This study investigates the language shift from isiXhosa to Afrikaans in a group of indigenous African language speakers in a rural Northern Cape community. It plots the process that took place over three generations and focuses on the language identity of some members of this community as portrayed by their language biographies and linguistic repertoires. This phenomenon was researched after preliminary enquiries into linguistic identities and bilingualism in the Hopetown area revealed that although most inhabitants use Afrikaans as L1 at home, at school and in public, a considerable number did not present the anticipated monolingual Afrikaans with minimal L2-English repertoires. People from indigenous ethnic groups like the Xhosa were also found to be speaking Afrikaans as home language rather than isiXhosa. The thesis gives a description and explanation of how a process of language shift from isiXhosa to Afrikaans took place. The findings suggest that a number of Xhosas started to migrate from the Eastern Cape to the Hopetown area in the Northern Cape during the 1960s when employment opportunities in the State‟s water and irrigation development scheme became available. The Afrikaans-speaking employers expected their workforce to speak Afrikaans and in the interest of economic survival, the disenfranchised workers learned to speak Afrikaans. In addition to the employment situation, the accommodation situation was unusual in that Hopetown‟s township was seen as a Coloured area. In the time when the Group Areas Act dictated that ethnic segregation had to be enforced, the influx of Xhosa and other ethnic groups was not expected. When it happened, it was either overlooked or remained unnoticed. The Xhosa workers, with their families, had to blend in with the Coloured population in order not to attract attention. The research follows the language shift based on information gained from questionnaires and by means of narrative analysis. Case studies of selected respondents reveal how the individuals gradually settled into a new language identity without complete loss of their traditional ties to language and cultural practices. A small story analysis sheds light on how selected members of the community experienced the shift and how they perceive their roles in the process. This thesis ultimately shows the contribution that language biographies can make to sociolinguistic research.

AFRIKAANSE OPSOMMING: Hierdie studie ondersoek die taalverskuiwing van isiXhosa na Afrikaans in ʼn inheemse groep Afrikataalsprekers in ʼn plattelandse Noord-Kaapse gemeenskap. Dit volg die proses wat oor drie generasies plaasgevind het en fokus op die taalidentiteit van enkele lede van dié gemeenskap soos uitgebeeld in hulle taalbiografieë en taal repertoires. Hierdie verskynsel is nagevors nadat voorlopige navrae in verband met talige identiteit en tweetaligheid in die Hopetown-omgewing daarop gedui het dat alhoewel die meeste inwoners Afrikaans tuis, by die skool en in die openbaar as eerstetaal gebruik, ʼn aansienlike…
