Editorial Reviews

"This reference work provides a neat overview of the subfield of linguistic anthropology, including past research and future directions. (...) Overall, the chapters read as more accessible than is typical for linguistic anthropology, which tends towards jargon and unintelligibility. Part of the reason for this is the mostly standard structure of the entries, each of which offers some combination of historical perspectives, critical/key issues, current contributions and research, recommendations for practice, and future directions. Summing Up: Highly recommended" - E. Pappas, University of Virginia in CHOICE
