The first step proceeded from a critique of essentialist and moralist ideas of identity and othering to a differentiation of the three grammars. As these grammars are articulated in social interactions, they inevitably involve dimensions of hegemony, hierarchy and power, and thus the second step has analysed these in ethnographic studies and comparisons. When hierarchy and power are expressed by physical force, one comes up against the limitations imposed on the use of the grammars. Violence, so it was argued in the third step, not only limits the use of the grammars, but its inherent delegitimization of grammatical otherings in turn furthers the rule of anti-grammatical otherings. Our last angle of enquiry, the fourth step, has attempted to widen the debate by revisiting the problem of structure versus agency and by questioning the relationship between grammatical and antigrammatical otherings. In taking these four steps, we have suggested answers to some questions and tried to reformulate others.
