It's Been Said Before

Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Book Information


Title: Anthropology of Color
Subtitle: Interdisciplinary multilevel modeling
Edited By: Galina V. Paramei
Don Dedrick

The field of color categorization has always been intrinsically multi- and
inter-disciplinary, since its beginnings in the nineteenth century. The
main contribution of this book is to foster a new level of integration
among different approaches to the anthropological study of color. The
editors have put great effort into bringing together research from
anthropology, linguistics, psychology, semiotics, and a variety of other
fields, by promoting the exploration of the different but interacting and
complementary ways in which these various perspectives model the domain of
color experience. By so doing, they significantly promote the emergence of
a coherent field of the anthropology of color.
