"Until we learn to see all language practices as negotiations across asymmetrical relations of power, we cannot do full justice to the extraordinary art and risk involved in the deliberative language work of members of subordinated groups in their efforts to produce meanings and forms that seemingly iterate or deviate from the norm. That is, until we see translinguality as relevant to and operating in the learning and writing of all writers, whether marked by the dominant as mainstream or nonmainstream, the art and struggle of writers from subordinated groups will always be dismissed as irrelevant to the work of mainstream learners."
