For four previous editions, professor have turned to Zdenek Salzmann's Language, Culture, and Society for its comprehensive coverage of all critical aspects of linguistic anthropology, as well as for its reputation as a pedagogically sound, student-friendly text. New coauthors James Stanlaw and Nobuko Adachi join Salzmann in revising this classic text. With extensive updates and expanded discussions of fundamental issues, the fifth edition continues to be the essential teaching text for the introductory linguistic anthropology course.

The fifth edition of Language, Culture, and Society features:

· Three new chapters on language and thought, language and ideology, and language in a globalized world, as well as expanded consideration of the role of linguistics as a key subfield of anthropology.
· An updated built-in resource manual and study guide for students and instructors.
· Sidebars and boxes throughout to provide ethnographic detail, enhance student comprehension, and illustrate the practical experience of conducting linguistic research.
· End-of-chapter summary and conclusion sections and a glossary for easy review, as well as an updated bibliography for further research.

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
