04 NEWS WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 2 2015 NTNE01Z01MA - V1 www.nt.gov.au/becrocwise www.nt.gov.au/becrocwise www.nt.gov.au/becrocwise 2015 CROC CAPTURES www.nt.gov.au/becrocwise 1 8 5 Bogan, as she is spoke A DARWIN boffin of boganology will present her highbrow research into the conceptualisation of the word bogan to a pomposity of boffins at a national market and social research conference in Sydney, beginning today. Charles Darwin University lecturer and Griffith University PhD candidate, bogan-whisperer Roz Rowen who has received death threats over her groundbreaking research into the world of the bogan presents on her linguistic research around the world. And it could be of interest to companies who want to market their products to Aussie bogans. Her research is in lexical semantics and conversation analysis and the Australian Market and Social Research Society invited her on the back of her pioneering work being trumpeted to the world on the front page of the very bogan Sunday Territorian. Her investigations have included sitting in on a conversation of a knitting club in Brisbane. She said there had never been research into how people systematically go about talking to make meaning. She said by the words people used about something, such as the word bogan, she could map how people conceptualised the word bogan. If youre trying to target a particular demographic then you need to know how and why they are talking about that, how theyre conventionalising words basically, she said. They asked for bogans of course, because that is the only interesting thing I do apparently. Her presentation is entitled, Why not let Bogans be bygones? Beyond boganism as a negative cultural stereotype. How cultural identity terms are ascribed and attain meaning in interaction. Her session description states: Emerging research that looks to bridge the gap between the semantic (meaning) and pragmatic (interaction) interface may be the key to understanding the use of these terms in interaction and give rise to ways it can inform and be applied across research fields. Bogan can be analysed using an evolving method of linguistic analysis for examining how, in talk, participants use social terms to categorise people and to inform and understand practices of moral and social order, she said. Which would be quite a mouthful for any bogan.
