Conceptual Foundations of the Formation of Linguistic Socialization Abroad

49

Abstract

The article provides an analysis of the conceptual foundations of the formation of linguistic socialization in the 20th century. Special attention is paid by the authors to the study of the pragmatics of the development of Elinor Ochs and Bambi Schieffelin, which became the basis for the emergence of linguistic socialization, exploring how children perceive and act out the «context of the situation» in relation to the «context of culture». The authors described the existing relationships between linguistic socialization and language acquisition, linguistics and anthropology. It was revealed that linguistic socialization combines discursive and ethnographic methods that fix social structures and cultural interpretations of semiotic forms, practices that allow children to properly build interaction in society in the future. The authors conclude that studies devoted to the process of language acquisition prioritise the mother-child conversation as the object of study, while studies of language socialization extend it to the range of communicative partners — adults and children — with whom the child or other new community member typically interacts to some degree in socioculturally configured settings.
