Sample text

Gal (2006: 18–19), for instance, shows how the use of particular varieties of Hungarian and German may be subject to radically divergent evaluations. On the one hand, bilingual residents of a small town in eastern Austria typically preferred to use German rather than Hungarian on visits across the border, since the variety of Hungarian they spoke was considered archaic and redolent of an undesirable and parochial past. On the other hand, Hungarian-Germans who returned to Hungary after a period of migration to Germany were both envied by fellow Ungarndeutsche for the desirable consumer goods they brought back with them and denigrated for the linguistic practices (using ‘modern’ German) they had also acquired along the way.

Such ‘memory narratives’ are therefore an opportunity to reinterpret the past from the perspective of the present, but they may also, as we shall see in Chapter 5, offer an opportunity to revisit the past in order to recreate or reclaim something that has been lost or removed. A life story is thus ‘more than a recital of events’ (Rosenwald and Ochberg 1992: 8–9), a simple chronicle, for although temporal ordering is an essential element of composing a story (De Fina 2003: 11) achieving coherence and continuity entails a substantial editorial process in which ‘events are selected, compressed, shaped, recreated and reconstructed for the occasion of the telling’ (Cortazzi 2001: 388–9), so that every story is an interpretation of experience.

The focus of our attention will therefore be on the (auto)biographical location of speakers’ selves in the context of social and historical conditions that make various (ethnic) identifications possible through the (self-)allocation to a group on the basis of language knowledge or use, but where this may or may not be considered desirable. indd 25 5/5/10 10:01:30 26 Language and Social Change in Central Europe this (self-)attribution is contingent on the perceived validity of specific ethnic categories.
