Resumo: Speech is, and always has been, at the heart of folkloristic research, from the traditional focus on ‘oral’ tradition to more recent sociological studies of speaking, which attempt to understand how the social locations and social conditions of speech affect what is said. As Pierre Bourdieu put it, the perspective has shifted from an emphasis on speech as a realisation of linguistic competence to the ‘socially conditioned way of realizing this natural capacity’ (1994:54). Not everyone, Bourdieu observed in his critique of Austin’s performative theory of speech, can utter the words ‘I name this ship the Royal Brittania’ or open Parliament. There is no such thing as ‘pure’ speech, he remarked, no linguistic free market. The power to speak, like speech itself, is socially conditioned, and among the most influential social determinants of who is allowed to speak is gender. Although Bourdieu has curiously little to say on gendered speech, and even less on gendered silence, folklorists have shown a keen interest in these topics and viewed silence not simply as the absence of speech but as a form of social subordination.
