Subject: Anthropological Linguistics: Relatively Speaking by Danziger

RELATIVELY SPEAKING: Language, Thought, and Kinship Among the Mopan Maya
Eve Danziger, University of Virginia
(Oxford Studies in Anthropological Linguistics)

Using fourteen months of ethnographic fieldwork among the Mopan Maya
in Belize, Eve Danziger examines the semantic complexity of particular
kinship terms used among Mopan women and children and shows that a
culture-specific analysis of their terms is superior to other
non-ethnographically-based methods. In doing so she contributes not
only to theoretical semantics and the ethnography of that area, but to
the cross-cultural study of child development and language
