Research

research overview

  • Chase Wesley Raymond's research is interdisciplinary, centering on the use of language in everyday life. For him, the study of language provides the means through which the moment-by-moment 'doing' of social life is accomplished and can be systematically investigated. In addition to everyday conversation, he is particularly interested in situations of contact—when divergent languages, dialects, cultures, etc. come together in interaction—with a primary focus on Spanish speakers in the United States. He brings together methods from Conversation Analysis, Interactional Linguistics, and Sociolinguistics to investigate language use in both institutional and non-institutional contexts.
