about this item

THE ANTHROPOLOGY OF LANGUAGE: AN INTRODUCTION TO LINGUISTIC ANTHROPOLOGY is an introduction to the field's methodology, skills, techniques, tools and applications that emphasizes questions that anthropologists ask about language and that intrigue students. This authoritative yet approachable fourth edition combines the key areas of linguistic anthropology, addressing issues of power, race, gender and class throughout. Further stressing the everyday relevance of the content, authors Ottenheimer and Pine include "In the Field" vignettes that draw students into the chapter material via stories culled from their own and others' experiences. And "Doing Linguistic Anthropology" and "Cross-Language Miscommunication" features describe real-life applications of core concepts. A revised companion workbook/reader and robust companion website make a complete, integrated package for your course.
