Young Danes differ with regard to their degree of geographical and socio-economical mobility as more women than men move to the cities to study.Does such a difference in mobility practice show, however, as early as in primary school? Is there a gender component to how adolescents make use of, conceptualise and relate to their local place and to how they linguistically index the local (Johnstone 2010b)? This study examines the intricate relationship between everyday mobility, place, linguistic practice and gender among adolescents in two very different Danish settings: a rural, mono-ethnic village, Bylderup, and an urban, poly-ethnic residential area, Vollsmose. In Bylderup, the use of local dialect is prevalent, whereas in Vollsmose, regional dialect seems to coexist with poly-ethnic language styles. Data are obtained through participant observation, sociolinguistic interviews, questionnaires, and peer group recordings.",
