MEDIA REVIEWS
Laura Ahearn s Living Language stands out for its deft integration of disparate approaches to linguistic anthropology, highlighting the field s rich range of intellectual genealogies and contemporary innovations. This book is deserving of high praise for managing to capture the field s nuance and complexity, while doing so in a way that is accessible, timely, and of interest to both specialists and non-specialists alike. (Journal of Linguistic Anthropology, 5 December 2014) Overall, this reviewer finds the book balanced, appreciable and well written. (Anthropological Notebooks, 1 October 2012) In conclusion, we strongly recommend the book for both undergraduate and graduate introductory courses.
