2011-03-24T10:07:11Z My aim in this thesis was to show that language and culture are not two distinct entities. In order to do this, I critically<br />discussed, in the first part, some of the assumption that are at the basis of an important part of the linguistic investigation in this<br />century: the distinctions between langue and parole, i.e. (abstract) language structure and language use; the notion of linguistic<br />structures and signs being arbitrary; the approach to linguistic relativity that considers relations between perception and<br />decontextualized language structures (thus excluding context to a large extent)[1] For a critical discussion of the distinction<br />diachrony vs synchrony see Labov 1972 and Milroy 1992.<br /><br />I tried to show that users of a language (interactants, or participants to a linguistic interaction) not only possess a background<br />knowledge of grammatical structures (what Chomsky terms competence), but also the ability to use this knowledge in specific<br />situations. This ability is not a simply a context-independent set of rules (what Hymes termed communicative competence),<br />but highly elusive and shifting from situation to situation. I used the term ideology to describe this ability because it is based on<br />beliefs or sets of beliefs. deposit-license Political Correctness and ideology: a cross-cultural linguistic study Benassi, Giuliano eng Benassi, Giuliano application/pdf 2011-03-24T10:07:11Z 1997
