Language in Culture and Society surveys the full range of anthropological interests in the study of language, and of linguistic interests in the sociocultural context of language. Specifically anthropological in orientation, the book is unusually rich in cross-cultural content, in methodology in semantics, and in social variations in speech; it also includes material on verbal art and language change. The selections, almost entirely unabridged, discuss such topics and the place of linguistics and linguistic methodology in anthropology, structural and functional differences among languages; world view and cognitive style, cultural focus and semantic fields; role, socialization and speech; social structure and linguistic community; process of change; and results of change. Hymes' general introduction and introductions to each section integrate the material and place it in perspective, emphasizing the continuity of basic problems. Condition: Jacket corner chipped, spine extremities chipped, 1" tear with crease at front heal, 1/4" chip at back head, 1/2" tear at back edge heal, else a very good copy in like jacket.
