Abstract:

Language is closely linked to our social relationships and is the medium
through which we participate in a variety of social activities. This
original study explores the important role of language in various aspects
of our social life, such as identity, gender relations, class, kinship,
status, and hierarchies. Drawing on data from over thirty different
languages and societies, it shows how language is more than simply a form
of social action; it is also an effective tool with which we formulate
models of social life and conduct. These models - or particular forms of
social behaviour - are linked to the classification of 'types' of action or
actor, and are passed 'reflexively' from person to person, and from
generation to generation. Providing a novel and unified way of accounting
for a variety of social phenomena, this book will be welcomed by all those
interested in the interaction between language, culture, and society.
