Similarly, Vann et al. (this volume, Chapter 12) in their analysis of students' classroom talk activity that parallels the remunerative world of work, note that 'other students show their appreciation of his [a student's] wit with their laughter, thus co-constructing his identity at this moment* (my emphasis) What these claims demonstrate is that identity is located in the moment within a stretch of utterance, or thought in a non-interactional context, when the specific signifying communicative action is performed and/or perceived (see also Ibrahim's Use of Moments of Identification, 2003: 173).

This, I would suggest, is the reason that we are able to detect strains of other identities different from the one declared or foregrounded in particular moments. Thus Pavlenko and Blackledge's (2004) reference to 'a specific time and place' can be made more specific and thus better conceptualized in terms of moments. HIERARCHY OF IDENTITIES OMONIYI 21 Moments of identification Before I offer a formal definition for moment of identification as a conceptual construct, I want to show first that the groundwork for it has been done in previous studies in which it was evident that within a single social activity it is possible to articulate more than one identity.
