Language, our primary tool of thought and perception, is at the heart of
who we are as individuals. Languages are constantly changing, sometimes
into entirely new varieties of speech, leading to subtle differences in how
we present ourselves to others. This revealing account brings together
eleven leading specialists from the fields of linguistics, anthropology,
philosophy and psychology, to explore the fascinating relationship between
language, culture, and social interaction.

A range of major questions are discussed: How does language influence our
perception of the world? How do new languages emerge? How do children learn
to use language appropriately? What factors determine language choice in
bi- and multilingual communities? How far does language contribute to the
formation of our personalities? And finally, in what ways does language
make us human?

Language, Culture and Society will be essential reading for all those
interested in language and its crucial role in our social lives.
