 First, I explore forum members’ self-appointed pseudonyms (‘nicknames’, ‘nicks’), and then I move on to analyze the affordance of accompanying one’s postings with optional ‘Signatures’ (‘sigs’) (only) that can be made conspicuous below a member’s actual forum messages (see Kytölä 2013 for an analysis of further two member profile affordances).With the help of tentative categorization and quantitative analyses of language (variety) distributions in these ‘framing’ subspaces and selective discourse-analytic, interpretative ‘excursions’ behind those polylingual items, I outline a ‘road map’ for the visibility and positions of different languages and varieties the forums’ subspaces (cf.the analyses of interactive forum discussions in Kytölä 2012a, 2012b, 2013).Section 3 below includes a brief ethical consideration of such excursions into public or semi-public forum member profiles.
This paper argues that language choice and polylingual language use in the ‘bits and pieces’ of these forums’ subspaces can have an important local social meaning: manifestations of languages or their varieties – whether drawn from readily available source texts or innovatively crafted by forum members – align the members and the subsequent interactive discourse with global and local flows (Pennycook 2007) of football culture.
As we shall see, resources from the Finnish language and intertextuality between ‘Finland-based’ sources are also part of that global-local constellation (Kytölä in press).
