Words and Stones

This chapter conveys an ethnographic understanding of the contexts for speech and communication in Israeli society by discussing the learning (and unlearning) of languages in Israel. It focuses on the three languages primarily implicated in the negotiation of Arab and Jewish identities in Israel: Hebrew, Arabic, and English. It argues that the social contexts of language learning produce and constrain the configuration of contexts for language use observable in everyday social practice.

Keywords:   language use, speech, communications, Israel, Israeli society, learning, Hebrew, Arabic, English
