FAMILY TALK:
DISCOURSE AND IDENTITY IN
FOUR AMERICAN FAMILIES

Through everyday talk, individuals forge the ties that can make a family. Family members use language to manage a household, create and maintain relationships, and negotiate and reinforce values and beliefs. The studies gathered in Family Talk are based on a unique research project supported by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation in which four dual-income American families recorded everything they said for a week.  This book extends our understanding of family discourse and of how family members construct, negotiate, and enact their identities as individuals and as families. The volume also contributes to the discourse analysis of naturally-occurring interaction and makes significant contributions to theories of framing to theories of framing in interaction.
