A collection of interviews
Bernard Mulo Farenkia
Cape Breton University
This book is a collection of interviews on nominal address terms in family, community and workplace interactions in Cape Breton and in interactions at Cape Breton University (Canada). The interviews center on types of nominal address terms, the pragmatic intents behind their usages, the contexts in which they are employed, and sociocultural ramifications and constraints involved in their uses. The voices documented here give insights in the dynamics of nominal address terms and present various facets of address usages in Cape Breton Community. The collection provides valuable data for in-depth studies on address practice in Cape Breton and Canadian English as well as data for further sociolinguistic and cross-cultural pragmatic investigations.
