Vernacular Palaver highlights the continuing appeal of local identities for participants in social networks where communication occurs in languages that are not mother tongues. Using examples from video film, popular literature, religious activity and educational practice in West Africa, it demonstrates the importance of notions of localness and locality for speakers of non-native languages, despite the growing prominence of global languages in their lives.
