Abstract:

This edited collection presents two sets of interdisciplinary conversationsconnecting theoretical, methodological, and ideological issues in the study oflanguage. In the first section, Approaches to the study of the indigenouslanguages of the Americas, the authors connect historical, theoretical, anddocumentary linguistics to examine the crucial role of endangered languagedata for the development of biopsychological theory and to highlight howmethodological decisions impact language revitalization efforts. Section two,Approaches to the study of voices and ideologies, connects anthropologicaland documentary linguistics to examine how discourses of language contact,endangerment, linguistic purism and racism shape scholarly practice andlanguage policy and to underscore the need for linguists and laypersons aliketo 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 gapbetween disparate fields of analysis to treat the ecology of language in itsentirety.
