For four previous editions, professors 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 student-friendly pedagogy. New coauthors James Stanlaw and NobukoAdachijoin Salzmann in revising this classic text. With extensive updates and expanded discussions of fundamental issues in the field, the fifth edition continues to be the essential teaching text for the introductory linguistic anthropology course.
The fifth edition 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. This edition also includes an updated built-in resource manual and study guide, including key terms, discussion questions, projects, objective study questions, and suggestions for further reading.
