Harriet Ottenheimer's Linguistic Anthropology Workbook and Reader contains classic and contemporary readings and exercises that illuminate and expand on the basic concepts introduced in her engaging and accessible text, The Anthropology of Language. A special feature of this workbook and reader is a series of exercises drawn from a single language. These exercises are specifically designed to demonstrate different levels of analysis. Each section of the workbook concludes with a pointer to the robust Book Companion Website, where you will find additional exercises and readings, links to relevant websites, study questions, and key words to guide you to additional readings in InfoTrac College Edition's collection of articles.
