„Alles hab ich meiner kleinen Schwester zu verdanken“ –Humoristisch-subversive Medienaneignungen Jugendlicher
The present ethnographic and conversation analytical study is based on the authentic informal conversations of a group of German adolescent girls. In the data, I found that the speakers regularly appropriate bits and pieces of media discourse and embed them in their daily communication. One prominent activity I observed in the group’s communicative repertoire are para-social interactions, i.e. viewers’ engagements with television shows. In this paper, I investigate the various linguistic resources and communicative strategies of the girls’ appropriation of texts from a particular music talent show. In addition, I will explore the discursive and pragmatic functions of media engagements in this group and in general. The analysis will show that a standardized range of the mass media in our modern world does not necessarily result in a homogeneous audience reception because (also adolescent) viewers can read television texts in various ways.
