Abstract

This article argues that translanguaging itself is a methodology offering a new conceptual framework that promotes a number of important analytical shifts: shift away from language as abstract codes to meaning- and sense-making; attend to a wider range of multi-semiotic resources whilst refusing to privilege particular modes and methods of meaning-making over others; approach translanguaging as an expansively integrated experience. This methodological framework prompts us to ask different research questions and to find alternative ways of thinking and talking about data and methods of data collection and analysis. The article also reiterates my motivations for Moment Analysis that argues for spur-of-the-moment actions to be treated as significant data points in understanding the rhythm and meaning of social life.
