Title: Linguistic Anthropology
Written By: Alessandro Duranti
URL: http://www.cambridge.org/us/catalogue/catalogue.asp?isbn=0521449936
Description:

Alessandro Duranti introduces linguistic anthropology as an
interdisciplinary field that studies language as a cultural resource and
speaking as a cultural practice. The theories and methods of linguistic
anthropology are introduced through a discussion of linguistic diversity,
grammar in use, the role of speaking in social interaction, the
organization and meaning of conversational structures, and the notion of
participation as a unit of analysis.
