Racializing the Nonnative English Speaker Gail Shuck Boise State University Department of English This article identifies some discursive processes by which White, middle-class, na- tive-English-speaking, U.S.-born college students draw on a monolingualist ideol- ogy and position themselves and others within a language–race–nationality matrix. These processes construct the speakers’ Whiteness and nativeness in English as un- marked and normal; mark nonnative speakers of English as non-White and foreign; and naturalize connections between language, national origin, and race. I argue that dominant ways of talking about race in the United States persist as templates for cre- ating arguments about language. Ideological models are projected onto each other, recursively reproducing a hierarchical social order in which U.S.-born citizens, na- tive English speakers, and Caucasians retain a privilege widely perceived to be a nat- ural outcome of certain characteristics thought to be intrinsic to American-ness, na- tiveness (in English), or Whiteness. Key words: racialization, race, language ideologies, discourse processes, monolingualism, nonnative English speakers Language and race are closely linked as means of distinguishing Self from Other.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
