Linguistic Anthropology Résumé

Linguistic Anthropology: A Reader Alessandro Duranti

Linguistic Anthropology: A Reader is a comprehensive collection of the best work that has been published in this exciting and growing area of anthropology and is organized to provide a guide to key issues in the study of language as a cultural resource and speaking as a cultural practice. Editor Alessandro Duranti's extensive introduction provides an original perspective on the development of the field and highlights its most compelling issues. Each section of the volume includes a brief introductory statement, a set of guiding questions, and a recommended further reading list. The readings are both historically oriented and thematically coherent, and are grouped according to four themes: speech community and communicative competence: the performance of language: language socialization and literacy practices: and the power of language. Duranti has taken care throughout to trace theoretical and methodological connections among different authors and research agendas from anthropology and other disciplines. This is a collection that stands to serve both scholars and students.

Linguistic Anthropology Avis

Framed by an excellent historical introduction, Duranti's reader provides students and scholars alike with a sophisticated yet accessible introduction to the range of topics and approaches that make up modern linguistic anthropology. The readings, linked by concise and thoughtful introductions, include a judicious mix of classic articles and new research. This collection should provide a definitive vision for linguistic anthropology for a long time to come. Bradd Shore, Emory University Very well organized and selected, and thus an excellent teaching resource, this reader provides perspective on the coherence of linguistic anthropology as a field. It can also be flexibly tailored to bring a linguistic approach to most arenas of topical interest to contemporary anthropological research. George Marcus, Rice University I would like to acknowledge that I am glad Duranti made this compilation. Many of the articles included have been and in many cases still are examples of highly innovative scholarly work on issues of language related to culture. It provides an excellent (and long overdue) discussion of terminology, American lingustic anthropology's development within Cultural Anthropology, its subsequent drift away from anthropology towards an independent discipline increasingly focused on theoretical anthropologists in the late 1960s, and its reestablishment as a subfield of anthropology in the 1980s-90s. As a textbook this reader makes a very useful teaching aid, as a source book it provides valuable insights into the discipline of linguistic anthropology. Linguist List Alessandro Duranti has succeeded in compiling an excellent reader that many instructors and students will find useful as an introduction to key works in linguistic anthropology. Leaders in the theory and practice of contemporary linguistic anthropology are well represented, and all of the articles are excellent; indeed, most are recognized as contemporary classics in the field. This reader is an excellent addition to the growing library of readers in linguistic anthropology and a valuable new resource for both students and teachers. Current Anthropology
