For four previous editions, professor have turned to Zdenek Salzmann's "Language, Culture, and Society" for its comprehensive coverage of all critical aspects of linguistic anthropology, as well as for its reputation as a pedagogically sound, student-friendly text. New coauthors James Stanlaw and Nobuko Adachi join Salzmann in revising this classic text. With extensive updates and expanded discussions of fundamental issues, the fifth edition continues to be the essential teaching text for the introductory linguistic anthropology course.
The fifth edition of "Language, Culture, and Society" features:
- Three new chapters on language and thought, language and ideology, and language in a globalized world, as well as expanded consideration of the role of linguistics as a key subfield of anthropology.
- An updated built-in resource manual and study guide for students and instructors.
- Sidebars and boxes throughout to provide ethnographic detail, enhance student comprehension, and illustrate the practical experience of conducting linguistic research.
- End-of-chapter summary and conclusion sections and a glossary for easy review, as well as an updated bibliography for further research.
