the hot hardcore.
Two things about your last sentence, Joshua:
1. [considering [[the omnipresence of [heterosexuality in queer linguistics]]]? or [considering [[the omnipresence of heterosexuality] [in queer linguistics]]]???
[[[[[[]]]]]]][[[[[[]]]]]geez that's fun.
2. I'm reminded of an article by Jenny Sunden in which she uses the term "heterotextuality."
ps - TGIf'ingF.
i remember hearing about those blind taste test studies on women and ethnicity, and psychologists and sociologists have done similar studies based on pictures of women in a whole slew of settings ("let's give the woman a tattoo! let's make her wear a suit!") to determine how those affect perception. so sure, a few studies having people guess the age/gender/sexuality/whatever of their interlocutor based solely on their speech style could be interesting in terms of how language ideologies work within CMC. i'm more interested in the affect that assumed perceptions of one's interlocutor have on both speakers during talk-in-interaction, especially when that perception isn't true to real life. you know, how each speaker accomodates (or flat out doesn't accomodate) the other because of this.
real life. we really need a new term for that.
2. heterotextuality! jenny sunden is my new hero. any idea which article that came from?
friday nothing. i'm on fall break. and i'm out.
