Abstract:

In this paper I describe accounting episodes as communicative practice that can affect participants' cultural knowledge in boundaries of speech communities. On the basis of in-depth interviews with Japanese-speaking informants in the United States, I analyze: (1) the episodes in which informants' cultural knowledge about appropriate conduct was affected or broadened by their engaging in accounting practices with American English speakers; and (2) the cases in which informants did not pursue the problematic events that they had faced with English speakers because, in reality, they saw difficulty in doing so. In the latter cases, informants' cultural knowledge and their perception of the boundaries tended to remain as they had been before the problematic events. The study supports the idea that boundaries of speech communities are dynamic but also suggests that they would not change so easily because participants often choose not to engage in accounting episodes.
