Translingual Analysis Paper


Points 100

This assignment asks you to write an essay that analyzes one or more texts using a translingual approach. Your analysis should show how language users adapt and adopt global English for local cultural contexts and purposes; or how they engage in any of several multilingual competencies for writing and communication.

While people use language to get things done for specific purposes, they are also simultaneously creating and exchanging knowledge with each other about language. They use both their awareness of language (i.e., metalinguistic awareness) and their willingness to accommodate unfamiliar language uses (i.e., negotiating meaning) to their advantage. Their open attitude towards language connects them to transnational networks, makes new cultural forms of expression, and changes the character of English in the process, making it more flexible and accommodating as a global lingua franca.

Your task

Choose one of the case studies we have worked on so far and write a 3-to-4 page essay in which you analyze the translingual practices evident in it. For example, you might:

Analyze examples of transnational connections in the ill-literacies of a hip-hop track’s language and musical soundscape;
or
Analyze examples of transnational writing and lingua franca communication in the Cal Poly-Taiwan virtual exchange video data.
