Abstract:The present study aims at examining the correlation between multilingualism and the construction of social identity in Dakar (Senegal). More specifically it studies how the inhabitants of Dakar construct social identities in relation to the languages they speak. I will try to describe how they use the elements of their linguistic repertoire as a basis of their social identities. This will be done through a detailed case study of the inhabitants of the Dakar neighborhood of Yoff Mbenguene. In combining an ethnographic approach with discourse analysis, I will try to define the different constructed identities. To do so I will analyze the discourse of a group of informants which was recorded during my fieldwork. I will show how the informants construct several identities in function of the languages they speak. The analysis of this discourse is based on the theoretical foundations of social constructivism, meaning that I consider the informants as active entrepreneurs in the creation of identity. The research aim is twofold: first I want to document the way in which a part of the inhabitants of Dakar construct social identities in function of their linguistic repertoire; secondly I wish to make a contribution to the theory of social constructivism in offering a concrete example of identity construction.
