  Explore the connections among language, culture, and communicative meaning

 

Using data from cultures and languages throughout the world to highlight both similarities and differences in human languages, Language, Culture and Communication, Seventh Edition, explores the many interconnections among language, culture, and communicative meaning. The text examines the multifaceted meanings and uses of language. It also emphasizes the ways in which language encapsulates speakers' meanings and intentions.

 

Nancy Bonvillain focuses on analyzing communicative interactions, revealing how social relations are produced and reproduced through speech. The text also highlights the analysis of language ideologies, that is, the beliefs that people have about language structure itself, about language usage, and about appropriate norms for producing and evaluating speech.

This 7th edition contains updated information throughout as well as several new sections. Examples of language practices in African societies have also been added.

Review:

“Motivating, captivating, and everything you can think of in an excellent book from cover to cover.”

        - Desire Baloubi, Shaw University

 

“The chapter on the Ethnography of Communication is especially strong and lays the foundations for the rest of the book. I would not cut a thing from this book. The existing chapters are excellent .”
