"Once in a while a book is published that defines and shapes the content of a discipline.Profound Intellectual and Multiple ... Textbook Duranti's Linguistic Antrhopology is one of those books. Rooted in a profound knowledge of historical and current scholarship in both linguistics and anthropology...the author's discourse provides a clear manifesto for linguistic anthropology as a full-grown discipline of its own. ...instructors for linguistic anthropology classes will find this book extremely valuable. I know of no other text that is so well -documented about issues, theories, and methods in linguistic anthropology both synchronically and diachronically. ...the book is very coherent proposes a clear, distinctive way of doing linguistic anthropology. ...anybody who intends to conduct research in this discipline will find this to be an extremely valuable resource. " Giovanni Bennardo, American Anthropology "Linguistic anthropology should be of great help in opening up this dynamic branch of research to a broader audience." language in Society "Another stellar contribution from a leading linguistic anthropologist who is also the field's foremost anthologist and textbook author. The updated readings, editorial framing, and appended study-questions are excellent throughout."–Alan Rumsey, Australian National University "This new volume reflects the vibrancy of work in linguistic anthropology, and will be an indispensable teaching resource for language and culture courses of many different kinds."–Penelope Brown, Max Plank Institute for Psycholinguistics "This revised edition of Duranti's text provides an indispensable introduction to the vibrant field of linguisic anthopology. Duranti provides conceptual vocabulary and ethnographic exemplars for the complex multiplicity of language as a social activity, ranging from relatively isolated small-scale societies to speech communities within contemporary American society."–Regna Darnell, University of Western Ontario "Framed by an excellent historical introduction, Duranti's reader provides students and scholars alike with a sophisticated yet accessible introduction to the range of topics and approaches that make up modern linguistic anthropology. The readings, linked by concise and thoughtful introductions, include a judicious mix of classic articles and new research. This collection should provide a definitive vision for linguistic anthropology for a long time to come."–Bradd Shore, Emory University "Very well organized and selected, and thus an excellent teaching resource, this reader provides perspective on the coherence of linguistic anthropology as a field. It can also be flexibly tailored to bring a linguistic approach to most arenas of topical interest to contemporary anthropological research."–George Marcus, Rice University --This text refers to the edition.
