1 - 2 weeks availability
This book brings together papers written by William F. Hanks over the last decade, organized around the three central themes that have been emerged in his work: indexicality and referential practices; discourse genres and textuality; and the historical embeddedness of language. Together, they present the main elements of a coherent, synthetic approach to language in context.
William F. Hanks, Berkeley Distinguished Chair in Linguistic Anthropology and Professor and Chair of the Department of Anthropology at the University of California at Berkeley, is the author of Language and Communicative Practices and other noted works on language.
