CAUSES AND EFFECT OF SEXUAL DISCOURSE AMONG TERTIARY INSTITUTION STUDENTS

CHAPTER ONE GENERAL INTRODUCTION AND THEORETICAL PRELIMINARIES 1.1. Preamble: The linguistic forms deployed when talking about sexual actors, instruments and actions, are often charged with a high level of privacy in most societies of the world (cf. Jay, 2000). While these forms and their discourse properties have received much attention in the Western literature, research on it is relatively rare in Nigeria (details will be provided presently). But with the flooding of sex-related terms on the Nigerian communicative coast in recent times, due largely to the influence of Western-styled music and the Internet, it has become imperative to study the language of sex extensively, especially among the youth. Thus, this study investigates the linguistic tools that tertiary institution students use in their sexual discourse with a view to identifying the contextdetermined roles of language in and the impact of gender and religion on their sex-related interactions. In the present chapter, an insight is provided into the scope of the study in terms of discussion of the background to the study, some theoretical preliminaries and other research direction-indicative elements. These are taken in turn in the sections that follow.

Statement of the problem

Existing studies have addressed sexual discourse from socio-cultural (for example Adegbola and Babalola, 1999; Oloruntoba-oju, 2007), sociolinguistic (for example Mbaya 2002; Dare 2005; Salami 2006;), and critical linguistic perspectives (for example Undie et al 2007; Odebunmi 2010). These studies have considered sexual discourse as an enterprise in marital sex engagements, linguistic descriptions of culture-based images and body parts, literary representation of sex, taboo discourse, social conception of sex and metaphorisation of body parts. Hardly any of these studies has utilised strictly pragmatic principles in analysing the language and discourse of sex focused.
