about

This is volume II of "Coral Gardens and Their Magic", dealing with Kilivila terms related to gardening and agriculture. Kilivila is the language spoken on the Trobriand islands, a group of islands off the east cost of New Guinea. This volume will appeal to those with an interest in anthropology and Trobriand culture, and it would make for a fantastic addition to collections of allied literature. Contents include: "Language as Tool, Document, and Cultural Reality", "The Translation of Untranslatable words", "The Context of Words and the Context of Facts", "Th e Pragmatic Setting of Utterances", "Meaning as Function of Words", "The Sources of Meaning in the Speech of Infants", "Gaps, Gluts and Vagaries of a Native Terminology", etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
