Abstract:

This edited collection presents two sets of interdisciplinary conversations
connecting theoretical, methodological, and ideological issues in the study of
language. In the first section, Approaches to the study of the indigenous
languages of the Americas, the authors connect historical, theoretical, and
documentary linguistics to examine the crucial role of endangered language
data for the development of biopsychological theory and to highlight how
methodological decisions impact language revitalization efforts. Section two,
Approaches to the study of voices and ideologies, connects anthropological
and documentary linguistics to examine how discourses of language contact,
endangerment, linguistic purism and racism shape scholarly practice and
language policy and to underscore the need for linguists and laypersons alike
to acquire the analytical tools to deconstruct discourses of inequality.
Together, these chapters pay homage to the scholarship of Jane H. Hill,
demonstrating how a critical, interdisciplinary linguistics narrows the gap
between disparate fields of analysis to treat the ecology of language in its
entirety.
