Ilona Vandergriff is a professor of German at San Francisco State University. She holds a Ph.D. in German linguistics from UC Berkeley. Her main research interest is in discursive, practice-driven approaches to foreign and second-language use in technology-mediated environments that begin with what L2 users do when they connect with others online. She is the author of Second-language Discourse in the Digital World: Linguistic and social practices in and beyond the networked classroom (2016).

Description

Vandergriff’s discourse-analytic study of a Reddit discussion shows how L2 errors are construed as obstacles to full participation. In reproducing language ideologies and affirming the hegemony of the native speaker, Reddit community norms are shown to promote linguistic gatekeeping but the data also provide compelling evidence of inclusion of L2 users.
