Meanings of cultural importance are found not only in words but also
in the very grammar of a language. This exciting collection presents
eleven original studies of the relationship between grammar, culture,
and cognition, with data from languages and cultures from around the
world. Contributors discuss a wide variety of grammatical
phenomena. This book shows that the study of culture can help to
understand how and why languages differ in the ways they do.
