Threlford Lecture

Who has the authority to speak?: Linguistic intolerance in the twenty first century
Presented by Professor Bernadette O’Rourke, Professor of Sociolinguistics, Heriot Watt University
2:45pm, Main lecture theatre

Over recent decades we have seen important changes have taken place in our contemporary societies as a result of globalization and increased mobility. While there have been attempts at transnational and national levels to address the opportunities and challenges brought about by increased linguistic diversity, the management of such diversity on many levels continues to be influenced by the traditional foundations of linguistic nationalism. Such foundations have tended to be based on the principles of linguistic homogeneity, nativeness and monolingualism. These principles have kept in place a social order which has come to be characterized by socioeconomic hierarchies and inequalities with linguistic difference playing a key role. Such principles also constituted and continue to penetrate the basic epistemologies of linguistics itself, giving primacy to the “native”, “first language”, “mother tongue” speaker of a language as a linguistic model over the “non-native” or “second language” speaker.In the current social and political climate, we are seeing an even greater return to monolingual regimes leading to linguistic intolerance at many levels. In this talk I will examine the ideologies behind such intolerance and why certain profiles of speakers (new speakers, native speakers) and users of particular languages (majority or minority languages) are given more authority than others.
