Review:

Praise for Zdenek Salzmann, James Stanlaw, and Nobuko Adachi's Language, Culture, and Society, Fifth Edition

This is exactly what an introduction to linguistic anthropology should be. Touching on all the major components of the field, this accessible text demonstrates what the systematic study of language can tell us about human culture, history, and cognition.”
Caleb Everett, University of Miami

This new edition is not a simple revision, but a re-visioning of introductory linguistic anthropology. Salzmann, Stanlaw, and Adachi begin with basic linguistic concepts and take the reader through contemporary problems in linguistic anthropology... using examples from classic and recent research. This book is accessible to any college student interested in linguistic anthropology.”
Douglas W. Hume, Northern Kentucky University

Salzmann's fifth edition is undoubtedly the best introduction to the field of linguistic anthropology currently in print. The book has an engaging writing style making it highly readable so that complex material is both accessible and interesting.”
Tim Wallace, North Carolina State University
