“This reference work offers a neat overview of the subfield of linguistic anthropology, including past research and future directions. (…) Generally, the chapters read as more available than is typical for linguistic anthropology, which tends towards unintelligibility and jargon. Part of the reason for this is the mostly usual structure of the entries, each of which provides some combination of historical perspectives, current contributions and research, critical/key issues, recommendations for practice, and future directions. Summing Up: Highly recommended” — E. Pappas, the University of Virginia in CHOICE
