distinctions based on religious and cultural practices and beliefs, so that real southerners – those who will admit to having “strong” accents – are the ones who eat chitlins and Moon Pies, and drive an American car to church on Sunday mornings while other, less southern types are at home eating lox. 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? - 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. - A professor of anthropology, which provides him not only with traditional authority as a highly educated academic and speaker of the mainstream language, but also as someone who has studied human culture, and therefore is expected to have an u - unusual degree of understanding of the way human beings interact. Thus this author has outer trappings which authorizes him to choose between legitimate and subordinated language, and to publically appropriate the latter to make a point.

    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.
