Abstract

Speakers use a variety of different linguistic resources in the construction of their identities, and they are able to do so because their mental representations of linguistic and social information are linked. While the exact nature of these representations remains unclear, there is growing evidence that they encode a great deal more phonetic detail than traditionally assumed and that the phonetic detail is linked with word-based information. This book investigates the ways in which a lemma’s phonetic realisation depends on a combination of its grammatical function and the speaker’s social group. This question is investigated within the context of the word like as it is produced and perceived by students at an all girls’ high school in New Zealand. The results are used to inform an exemplar-based model of speech production and perception in which the quality and frequency of linguistic and non-linguistic variants contribute to a speaker’s style.

Abstract

Can we communicate the incommunicable? Language is general, but the “depths of the soul” are unique, and only the experience lived in silence is authentic. Would it be possible to find a language that would appear to say something but that would communicate nothing but the incommunicable? The present volume analyses how, by developing the simulacrum of a language or “pure media”, Klossowski managed to move beyond the prevarications of Gide, so hesitant to speak or remain silent about his “Uranianism”, and the wrath of Bataille or Sade, equating destruction and purity, to finally arrive at the Nietzschean innocence that creates gods.
