'I highly recommend this work ... documents the interplay between social relations, identity and language use in Central Java, while arguing that conversational participants establish and maintain social relations through the development of SRs and in so doing create identities and define expectations for moral behaviour.' Ellen Rafferty, Asian Studies Review '[This] book offers the reader a window on a corner of the earth where language and identity go hand in hand, a fact further brought into relief by ongoing migration and the resultant readjustments in fashioning individual identities and imagining the social fabric.'
