Example text

6 The formation, adaptation and generation process of the habitus 37 38 The Discursive Construction of the Scots Language Although habitus can be defined in conceptual terms, it is extremely difficult to investigate – it cannot be quantified, people are not aware of it, and its effects cannot be predicted from the stimuli a person has experienced. It is thus a product of long-term socialisation which cannot be pinned down to a single influence, and is both internalised and embodied. In the context of language use, habitus may be said to be at least partially responsible for particular styles of writing or speaking in certain contexts (and also for avoiding particular styles).

To take a simple example, a child who is repeatedly belted for using a Scots word may flinch whenever she hears this word – this alone is not habitus, but a mere instinctive, automatic reaction to a stimulus. Later in life, this person may shun the use of this word and tell her children not to use any Scots words, and to ‘talk proper’. The beatings she received as a child may be one factor that led to her acquiring her specific (linguistic) habitus, and her linguistic choices and actions may be the result of having acquired this habitus.

In this diagram (for written language), and in Aitken’s model above (for spoken language), and also in the work of R K S Macaulay (Macaulay, 1977) and Suzanne Romaine (1975, cited in Menzies, 1991), the view of the language variety used by many Scottish people as lying somewhere on a continuum between Scots and Scottish Standard English (SSE) begins to emerge. g. Douglas, 2006; Kirk, 1999; McClure, 1998; McPake & Arthur, 2006; Millar, 2004, 2006), perhaps partly because it removes the need for an analyst to categorically state that a given text ‘is Scots’ or ‘is English’.
