It was only me. So all these Australian people, they are nice but like, now they really won’t, you know, talk to you. Now, when I know English, I was so confident in myself and everything. I can be with anyone I want. But then when I came, like, no one really didn’t care, like you just, you’re just by yourself. Most of the time I spent in ESL here. It was really hard on you then. (Neta, a Year 11 Bosnian student) If your English is as fluent as Australian students, the Australian students do not really see you that much differently.
Bourdieu (1991) suggests that authority and power derive from the linguistic habitus and its different values in different sites of exchange. In his introduction to Language and Symbolic Power, Thompson (1991: 18) reminds us that in Bourdieu’s terms, ¼ differences in terms of accent, grammar and vocabulary – the very differences overlooked by formal linguistics – are indices of the social positions of speakers and reflections of the quantities of linguistic capital (and other capital) which they possess.
Second, since linguistic relations are social relations, they are also power relations, and the power of language to legitimate and maintain ideologies is a recurring theme in the literature. We speak often of learning a language, as if there were only one, or one with finite content. In fact, learning a language entails mastering many languages, or sets of discursive practices. The complex and dynamic processes involving language, membership, culture and identity are central to the position advocated by Gee, who places discourses at the heart of the matter.
