This student-centered text emphasizes contemporary issues and the application of linguistic anthropology using real-life chapter-opening vignettes ("In the Field") and boxed features that provide concrete examples of "Doing Linguistic Anthropology" and "Cross-Language Miscommunication." The second edition provides a solid introduction to the field of linguistic anthropology, and offers a complete learning package with a workbook/reader and robust companion website for every chapter in the text.
