I view language as embodied and identities as performed. That is, language is not divorced from those who produce it and should not be analyzed as devoid of social meaning. Using this framework, I appreciate and value variation as inherent to understanding any language variety. As a linguist, I have incorporated this conceptualization into my teaching practice.
