Facebook as a Heteroglossic Environment

    This project aims to invstigate the social networking site Facebook in reltion to its heteroglossic content.
    Ivanov (in Thurlov 2011) describes heteroglossica as "the simultaneous use of different kinds of speech or other signs, the tension between them, and their conflicting relationship within one text."
    I would like to focus on the various uses of languages: When and why does someone use their native and when a foreign language?
    My project results are presented in the form of a videoclip.
