Topic: How people use languages in different situation
In the study of linguistic anthropology, people use different way to deliver their thoughts when they are in different environment. And most of the time, it is based on the culture and background of the person. For a trilinguist like me, how people use language differently when they are in different situation is a topic that gets me quite interested, because I do change the way I speak. In the following essay, I am going to analyze the topic and share my own experience.
Not only the people who can speak different languages, everyone can be my key cultural consultants in this article, especially those who have different cultural background. This article is anthropological because how people use their language can connected to their culture and background. Also, it related to how human think and behave. I will tell the story about my own experience about how I didn’t know that I need to change the way to talk to others and faced some problem. And the reason why is I have better understanding on the situation that I have experienced.
For the academic sources, I am going to talk about “multiculturalism vs Nationalism” and “Language serves as a maker of ethnic group membership.” For the outside source, I am going to use the article “How does language change depending on different social situation” by Jessica Saunders
