Abstract

In his opening article, Rampton portrays Linguistic Ethnography (LE) as consisting of a broad range of work, sharing family resemblances and reflecting features of the particular niche in which it has developed. The subsequent articles explore various issues and relationships relevant to LE. There is obviously much that could be said about these contributions, from many angles, but I will focus on just a few points here that seem of significance from my perspective: the nature of LE as an approach; realism versus constructionism; and the question of methodological warrant.
