Example text

The families associated with this (rather expensive) kindergarten also formed something of an élite in the town, and the use of speech levels is one way in which they demonstrate their perceived edge over their fellow mortals, as elsewhere (see Hendry 1985). My association with this establishment made clear that women’s language, in particular, can be more flexible and open to manipulation than suggested by textbooks, which usually focus on the language of men. This study would thus open up an area as yet little discussed in western publications.

The location was charm itself: quiet, peaceful, and incredibly beautiful, with an appealing smell of wood smoke hanging in the fresh mountain air. The houses were various. One was clearly too low ceilinged, as I walked in and immediately bumped my head. Another was a little isolated but in such a perfect spot that I felt inclined to move there for the rest of my life. A third was more convenient, though with a less spectacular view. When we returned to the office, there was much further discussion, and a local newspaper reporter came to take my photograph.

A year later I visited her, but relations were still a little cool, although in the interim she did try to communicate her side of the situation through a third party. For a while, her cards and letters started with apologies, going on to speak of hopes for our ‘recovered’ friendship. Her last letter includes an idea she has had for how the rift might THE PARADOX OF FRIENDSHIP IN THE FIELD 41 have been avoided (see below). My feeling is that our friendship will, indeed, recover. In our dotage, with our children grown and gone, we may even come to laugh over our anthropological experiences together.
