Summary

Chosen for their accessibility and diversity, the readings inMaking Sense of Language: Readings in Culture and Communication, Second Edition, engage students in thinking about the ability to use languageperhaps the most uniquely human of all our characteristicsand how this skill relates to both classical theories of language and contemporary life. Instead of taking an ideological stance on these issues, the text presents a range of theoretical perspectives and bolsters them with pedagogical support, including chapter introductions; critical-thinking, reading, and application questions; and a comprehensive glossary. Weaving in questions of power, gender, identity, ritual, interaction, and the nature of language throughout, the second edition ofMaking Sense of Languageis an exemplary text for courses in language and culture and linguistic anthropology.
