'Ethnolinguistics' is the study of how language relates to culture and
ethnicity. This book offers an original approach to ethnolinguistics,
discussing how abstract concepts such as truth, love, hate and war are
expressed across cultures and ethnicities. James W. Underhill seeks to situate
these key cultural concepts within four languages (English, French, Czech and
German). Not only do these concepts differ from language to language, but they
go on changing over time. The book explores issues such as how far meaning is
politically and culturally influenced, how far language shapes the thought of
ethnic groups and how far their thought shapes language, and the role of
individuals in the consolidation of cultural concepts. It offers a clear and
thought-provoking account of how concepts are understood and will be welcomed
by those working in the fields of sociolinguistics, linguistic anthropology,
discourse analysis, semantics and pragmatics.
