How do we make sense of our experience? In order to understand how we
construct meaning, the varied and complex relationships among language,
mind, and culture need to be understood. While cognitive linguists
typically study the cognitive aspects of language, and linguistic
anthropologists typically study language and culture, "Language, Mind, and
Culture" is the first book to combine all three and provide an account of
meaning-making in language and culture by examining the many cognitive
operations in this process.

In addition to providing a comprehensive theory of how we can account for
meaning making, "Language, Mind, and Culture" is a textbook for anyone
interested in the fascinating issues surrounding the relationship between
language, mind, and culture. Further, the book is also a "practical"
introduction: most of the chapters include exercises that help the student
understand the theoretical issues. No prior knowledge of linguistics is
assumed, and the material is accessible and useful to students in a variety
of other disciplines, such as anthropology, English, sociology, philosophy,
psychology, communication, rhetoric, and others.

"Language, Mind, and Culture" helps us make sense of not only linguistic
meaning but also of some of the important personal and social issues we
encounter in our lives as members of particular cultures and as human beings.

Linguistic Field(s): Psycholinguistics
