Abstract

Heteroglossia refers to Mikhail Bakhtin's concept of multiple speech practices that operate within a community or social group at any given historical moment. Most communities are characterized by heteroglossia in that they comprise a range of languages, discourses, voices, and viewpoints that continuously compete for authority and power. This article identifies the philosophical background of heteroglossia, its various alternative forms and versions, key related concepts, and examples of research studies that have developed the original concept.
