Studies in the Social and Cultural Foundations of Language

Back to Language and linguistics

Editors: Marjorie Harness Goodwin, Judith Irvine, Joel Kuipers, Don Kulick, John Lucy, Elinor Ochs, Bambi Schieffelin, Michael Silverstein

Linguistic anthropologists seek to understand the social and cultural character of language: they investigate socioculturally grounded 'meanings' and 'functions' of linguistic forms, and the variations in language usage across cultures. Studies in the Social and Cultural Foundations of Language publishes monographs and edited collections that make substantive ethnographic and theoretical contributions to this growing subfield of anthropology. The books are aimed at scholars in the sociology and anthropology of language, anthropological linguistics, sociolinguistics and socioculturally informed psycholinguistics.
