Abstract

A TALE OF TWO CULTURES

Lynne Kathryn Norazit

This case investigates the issue of identity, particularly ethnic identity, as it is expressed through language. It compares the stories of two young women of similar ethnicity, but who have chosen to adopt quite different ethnic identities. By highlighting their different social and linguistic backgrounds, this case also explores the possible reasons for the identity choices they have made.
