Female dilemma: Gender expectations and the portrayal of contrast identities in two different worlds

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

This article examines the contrast linguistic identities, values and norms of interaction among the young Malaysian women when they communicate in both virtual and real worlds. The analysis of the data will involve the Malaysian cultural frameworks and politeness strategies, Lee Su Kim’s (2003, 2010) variables and concepts pertaining to language and identity, as well as the idea of Indexicality Principle forwarded by Bucholtz and Hall (2010). The sample of respondents comprised of 60 female participants of GenY Facebook users in the country. Two research tools were employed: the documentations of naturally occurring instances of daily conversations on Facebook in a period of 12 months and semi-structured interviews. Data gathered from both research tools were qualitatively analyzed and discussed hand in hand. The study found a huge violation of traditional politeness principles in these young Malaysianwomen’s norms of online interaction, thus demonstrates a clash of values practiced by these participants in the online communication environment, as compared to the traditional values that they are expected and continue to practice in the real life.
