Linguistic Anthropology

A Brief Introduction

By Marcel Danesi

Description
Anthropologists have always put language at the centre of their agenda. So too have linguists. Anthropological linguistics, the amalgam of the two disciplines, aims to document and examine how language mirrors social structure and cultural-specific thought patterns. Linguistic Anthropology: A Brief Introduction — the third edition of Marcel Danesi's popular text — provides a concrete method for studying the relation between language and society.

This book is ideal for introductory-level courses in linguistics that adopt a cultural focus and is also suitable for supplementary use in more theoretical linguistics courses. The new edition has been restructured and streamlined to make it a better fit for one-semester courses. Written in Danesi's accessible and engaging style, this book will also appeal to a broad audience of language students, scholars, and enthusiasts.
