Racial Linguists

Studies of racial language

Schmidt-Rohr Thought that language can speak when race is muted; it is world view, and it has the power to bring race into the realm of historical action
Weisgerber Believed that German linguists tended to see German history as an exile or diaspora, a stateless confusion in which only the language had held the German people together and marked a boundary between "us" and "them"
Simon Deduced that the willingness of academics in the Nazi era to put their skills at the service of the state does not justify the retreat into an impenetrable and hermetically sealed private academic world
Massey & Denton Found that social scientists have documented the variety of ways in which racial factors affect Americans’ housing decisions
Cornell & Hartman Defined a race as ‘a group socially defined on the basis of real and perceived ‘characteristics
Darder & Torres Argued that race as an analytical term has remained a paper tiger; seemingly powerful in discourse matters but ineffectual as an analytical metaphor, incapable of moving us away from the pervasive notion of race as an innate determinant of behaviour
Barth Believed that several scholars are more interested in the construction of ethnic boundaries as opposed to the content of ethnic groups
Hewitt Emphasised that ethnicity is a positional concept, for it has its existence only in relation to other cultures bound within specific political and economic systems
Gumperz & Cook-Gumperz Argued that adolescents transgress ethnic boundaries by crossing into languages associated with other ethnic groups, creating new ethnicities
Trechter & Bucholtz Discovered that dominant groups are excluded from these areas because of their unmarked, normative status against which minority groups are unequally positioned
