Linguists have become increasingly interested in examining how class culture is socially constructed and maintained through spoken language. Julie Lindquist's examination of the linguistic ethnography of a working-class bar in Chicago is an important and original contribution to the field. She examines how regular patrons argue about political issues in order to create a group identity centered around political ideology. She also shows how their political arguments are actually a rhetorical genre, one which creates a delicate balance between group solidarity and individual identity, as well as a tenuous and ambivalent sense of class identity.

About the Author:

Julie Lindquist is at University of Southern Mississippi, Hattiesburg.

Review:

"Too much has been made, in recent thought, of the vanishing public sphere. Too little has been made of the role of the tavern in creating and sustaining the public, especially in early American life. Lindquist's valuable work can add to both these areas of inquiry. It can also inform larger
questions about what it is we yearn for when we imagine effective public language and viable political identity."--Language in Society

Using a comination of sociolinguistic and rhetorical analysis, Lindquist's work offers new insights into the shape andmeaning of the sociopolitical identity of the working class, and demonstrates how class can be created at the local, and purely rhetorical, level. Compelling and persuasive, her work will be of interest to scholars and students of sociolinguistics, rhetoric, anthroplogy, and cultural studies interested in the complex dynamics of contemporary culture.
