Synopsis

This third edition of Language, Culture, and Society has profited from the comments of several instructors who have been using the text successfully during the past several years. In his revisions, Zdenek Salzmann has not only updated the text but has made it even more user-friendly. Two of the original chapters have been subdivided, the text has been enriched by the inclusion of additional examples, and the discussions of some of the more abstract topics have been edited with the student and the layperson in mind. With the growing emphasis in anthropology on applications of anthropological findings, references to the uses of linguistic anthropology are included throughout the book, and the final chapter is devoted solely to applications. }This third edition of Language, Culture, and Society has profited from the comments of several instructors who have been using the text successfully during the past several years.

Two of the original chapters have been subdivided, the text has been enriched by the inclusion of additional examples, and the discussions of some of the more abstract topics have been edited with the student and the layperson in mind. With the growing emphasis in anthropology on applications of anthropological findings, references to the uses of linguistic anthropology are included throughout the book, and the final chapter is devoted solely to applications. Because anthropology stresses the holistic view, the tendency to integrate the data from all subfields of anthropology is evident throughout the book. }
