Abstract:

This ethnographic study deals with the ways people in Athens, Greece, use
style to construct their social class identities. Including a rich dataset
comprising ethnographic interviews with actual people who live in the
stereotypically seen as leafy and posh northern suburbs and in the
stereotypically treated as working class western suburbs of Athens coupled
with data from popular literary novels, TV series and Greek hip hop music, it
argues that the relationship between style and social class identity is
mediated by complex social meanings encompassing features from and discourses
relevant to both areas, which are structured across different orders of
indexicality depending on the genre of speech in which they are created. As
such, it will be of interest to scholars in sociolinguistics, discourse
analysis, anthropology, sociology, Modern Greek studies, and to everyone who
is interested in how social class is constructed via language.
