-Both are influencing each other.(Defining themselves) 3. What does the term strategies of condescension mean and how does the opinion piece about state stereotypes cited in the article (p.208) serve as an example? - This is a tactic whereby an empowered individual – someone with social legitimacy in terms of employment and language and other kinds of authority – appropriates the subordinated language for a short period of time. -ex) White people mock Spanish 4. What, according to Lippi-Green, is the primary stereotype of the southerner? Talk about how the example from the university foreign-language instructor (p. 210) provides evidence for the circulation of this stereotype in society. -primary stereotype Not smart/educated/ignorant -secondary stereotype lack of wisdom (innately) -Not so interested in him any more after know that he speaks in southern accent English. -Society looks Southern accent stupid southerners reproduced on television and in film? (i.e. what kinds of characters are portrayed as southern and how are they different from other nonsouthern characters? -Index 6. What do you think Lippi-Green means by the term language subordination? How do we know that the language subordination process has been successful? - It means criticizing their language for not being normal. Language is in hierarchy order. Language subordination refers to the process of forcing an individual to abandon their native tongue and use the  same language as the majority of residents. It is basically telling someone to forget their accent and learn a new one;  preferably the same as everyone else.

    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.
