Abstract

A linguistic framework for the analysis of self was constructed to enable understanding of the participant's view. This linguistic framework has been elucidated in this chapter to consider the significance the linguistic representations of self has on the research from the perspective of the participant and the researcher. This chapter focuses on the linguistic representations of self by the participants, as interpreted by the researcher, and the self-reflective position of the researcher in Benveniste's 'I-You polarity'. The importance of participants self representation in research is considered and the impact that this has on research conclusions provide opportunity for readers to reflect on ethical considerations around objectivity. Issues with regard to the researcher as a communication gateway, and the how the researcher resituates the participant in the research is also highlighted. The connectivity to the methodologies which inform the use of 'I' is also explored in order to provide a stimulus for understanding the effect these concepts has in research. This chapter seeks to challenge the reader to consider how they envision participants in research.
