Review

"Language is the very center of social interaction, the stuff out of which social relations are made. In Living Language, Laura Ahearn introduces us to a twenty-first-century linguistic anthropology, configured around a view of language as a material social activity, as something that people do, rather than as an abstract tool that they use. Living Language introduces a growing, vibrant area of study but also serves as an entryway for other social scientists into a rapidly changing field." - Bruce Mannehim, University of Michigan
From the Back Cover

Revised and updated, the 2nd Edition of Living Language: An Introduction to Linguistic Anthropology presents an accessible introduction to the study of language in real-life social contexts around the world through the contemporary theory and practice of linguistic anthropology. Without oversimplifying key concepts and principles, Laura M. Ahearn continues to reveal the full richness and complexity of this important anthropological branch of study in a succinct and easily digestible manner. Topics covered include language and gender, race, and ethnicity; language acquisition and socialization in children and adults; language death and revitalization; performance; language and thought; literacy practices; and multilingualism and globalization. This edition also features an all-new chapter focusing on multimodal communication?including gestures, sign languages, and other forms of nonverbal language. While introducing readers to the fascinating field of linguistic anthropology, Ahearn accentuates the value of an ethnographically grounded approach to the study of language. This second edition of Living Language offers illuminating insights into the myriad ways language influences and shapes cultural norms and social interactions?and its increasing relevance in the 21st-century globalized world.
