Languages In The World: How History, Culture, and Politics Shape Language 1st Edition

Editorial Reviews
From the Back Cover

Including detailed linguistic analysis of an array of languages, coupled with sociological, historical, and biological insight, Languages in the World provides a uniquely interdisciplinary account of the evolution of language over the past 200,000 years. Tetel Andresen and Carter expertly illustrate the reciprocal nature of the relationship between language and society by balancing detailed discussion of the structure and distribution of specific languages with engaging personal and political narratives. Exercises and questions for further discussion are included at the end of each chapter and a companion website features sound files and a host of additional supplementary material.
From the role of Sanskrit in philology to a detailed analysis of the effects of globalization on world language, this innovative new bookwill be an essential tool for anyone interested in better understanding how language has evolved and where it is going.
