This chapter seeks to operationalize the theoretical perspective described in Chapter 3 through a discussion of the relationship between theory and methods. The study relies on technical analyses of linguistic detail and on a set of methodological procedures that are intended to play a role in the work of interpretation. Narrative forms a theme that joins together the strands of this chapter: the narrative (text) produced by the ethnographer is linked to the narratives (of personal experience) told in the course of ethnographic interviews and interpreted in the course of linguistic analysis, which, in turn, are linked to the narratives constituted by the semiotics of everyday life.

Keywords:   theory, method, ethnographer, narrative, identity, semiotics
