About Book
This is an accessible textbook addressing the full spectrum of fundamental topics in linguistic anthropology, with an augmented emphasis on language and gender. For three previous editions, professors have turned to Zdenek Salmann's "Language, Culture and Society" for its thorough coverage of linguistic-anthropology topics and accessibility to students. With updates and new features, this fourth edition expands its coverage of the fundamental issues in the field and enhances it accessibility to students. This fourth edition includes: new coverage of language and gender, and language and ethnicity; deeper consideration of race and gender, and race and ethnicity; a built-in resource manual and study guide for students and instructors includes lists of new terms, questions for discussion, suggestions for further reading and problems (with answers); end-of-chapter "Summary and Conclusion" sections; new boxes throughout the book provide ethnographic detail, enhance student comprehension of context and illustrate the practical experience of conduction linguistic research. A textbook and study guide-in-one, "Language, Culture and Society" is the teaching text for the linguistic anthropology course.
