Why should we study language? How do the ways in which we communicate define our identities? And how is this all changing in the digital world? Since 1993, many have turned to Language, Culture, and Society for answers to questions like those above because of its comprehensive coverage of all critical aspects of linguistic anthropology. This seventh edition carries on the legacy while addressing some of the newer pressing and exciting challenges of the 21st century, such as issues of language and power, language ideology, and linguistic diasporas. Chapters on gender, race, and class also examine how language helps create-and is created by-identity. New to this edition are enhanced and updated pedagogical features, such as learning objectives, updated resources for continued learning, and the inclusion of a glossary. There is also an expanded discussion of communication online and of social media outlets and how that universe is changing how we interact. The discussion on race and ethnicity has also been expanded to include Latin- and Asian-American English vernacular.

Answering this question requires the use of methodological resources in linguistics as well as outside perspectives drawn from related disciplines.

Binets erster Roman «HHhH» gewann 2010 den Prix Goncourt du Premier Roman, und sein neuer Roman «Die siebte Sprachfunktion» gewann 2015 den Prix Interallié und den Prix du Roman Fnac. Es ist ein Krimi mit Poststrukturalisten. Paris, Frühjahr 1980: Roland Barthes wird von einem bulgarischen Wäschelieferanten überfahren. Barthes kommt von einem Essen mit dem Kandidaten für das Amt des Ministerpräsidenten, François Mitterrand, und trägt ein Manuskript unter dem Arm. Ein Passant, Michel Foucault, wird Zeuge des Unfalls und behauptet, es war Mord. Der Tod des Autors ist für Kommissar Bayard ein Rätsel. Er mischt sich unter die Poststrukturalisten, besucht Vorlesungen von Foucault und hört Vorträge von Julia Kristeva, Philippe Sollers, Jacques Derrida und anderen. Da er nichts versteht, macht er den jungen Sprachwissenschaftler Simon Herzog zu seinem Assistenten. Der Roman ist auch ein Gesellschaftsporträt des Frankreichs der achtziger Jahre. Bayard ermittelt unter den Nach-Achtundsechzigern, die er nicht ausstehen kann, diesen linken Nichtsnutzen, die mit Joints und langen Haaren vor der Uni herumlungern und mit lüsternen Professoren, die von sexueller Freiheit labern und sich unzüchtig benehmen, Frankreichs Kultur gefährden. Das Manuskript, das Barthes bei sich hatte, bleibt spurlos verschwunden. Auch der bulgarische Geheimdienst interessiert sich dafür. Ein bulgarischer Mörder greift Simon Herzog mit einer vergifteten Regenschirmspitze an. Aber im letzten Moment wird Herzog von zwei Japanern gerettet. Sie sind ebenfalls hinter dem Manuskript her. Eine heiße Spur führt zu dem italienischen Semiotiker Umberto Eco. Also bewegt sich der Tross – Kommissar und Assistent, Bulgaren und Japaner, nach Italien. Die Reise geht noch lange weiter, sie führt sogar auf einen amerikanischen Campus, wo Foucault über die Sexualität der Elefanten philosophiert. Das Manuskript, das alle haben wollen, beschreibt die siebte Sprachfunktion (in Anlehnung an Roman Jakobsons Standardwerk der Linguistik über die sechs Sprachfunktionen). Die siebte Funktion, die Binet Roland Barthes erfinden lässt, gibt Politikern die rhetorischen Mittel an die Hand, öffentliche Rededuelle und damit auch die Wahlen zu gewinnen. Könnte Mitterrand damit an die Macht gelangen?

Wir betrachten unsere Art zu sprechen vielleicht nicht als ""gewalttätig"", dennoch führen unsere Worte oft zu Verletzung und Leid - bei uns selbst oder bei anderen. Die Gewaltfreie Kommunikation hilft uns bei der Umgestaltung unseres sprachlichen Ausdrucks und unserer Art zuzuhören. Aus gewohnheitsmäßigen, automatischen Reaktionen werden bewusste Antworten. Wir werden angeregt, uns ehrlich und klar auszudrücken und gleichzeitig anderen Menschen unsere respektvolle Aufmerksamkeit zu schenken. Wenn wir die Gewaltfreie Kommunikation in unseren Interaktionen anwenden, ob mit uns selbst, mit ein.

Die beste Suchmaschine ist unser Geist Seit 2007 bietet Google seinen Mitarbeitern ein Programm für persönliches Wachstum an: »Search inside yourself«. Den Anstoß dazu gab Chade-Meng Tan, ein Google-Ingenieur, der diesen Acht-Wochen-Kurs zusammen mit renommierten Wissenschaftlern wie Jon Kabat-Zinn und Daniel Goleman entwickelte. »Search inside yourself« bietet ein Achtsamkeitstraining, um emotionale Intelligenz zu erlernen, mit dem Ziel, zufriedener, gelassener, kreativer und schließlich auch erfolgreicher zu werden. Es umfasst Übungen und Meditationen, um die Konzentration zu verbessern, die Selbstwahrnehmung zu erhöhen und nützliche mentale Gewohnheiten zu entwickeln. Bei Google ist dieses Trainingsprogramm äußerst beliebt und nachgefragt. Chade-Meng Tan macht es nun erstmals öffentlich zugänglich. Mit Leichtigkeit und Witz, und dabei stets wissenschaftlich fundiert (er ist ja Ingenieur!) zeigt er einen etwas anderen, jedoch sehr vielversprechenden Weg zu Kreativität und Lebensglück. Und wenn das bei Google funktioniert – warum nicht auch bei uns?

In the fully updated Seventh Edition of Intercultural Communication: A Contextual Approach, bestselling author James W. Neuliep provides a clear contextual model (visually depicted by a series of concentric circles) for examining communication within cultural, microcultural, environmental, sociorelational, and perceptual contexts. Students are first introduced to the broadest context—the cultural component of the model—and progress chapter by chapter through the model to the most specific dimensions of communication. Each chapter focuses on one context and explores the combination of factors within that context, including setting, situation, and circumstances. Highlighting values, ethnicity, physical geography, and attitudes, the book examines means of interaction, including body language, eye contact, and exchange of words, as well as the stages of relationships, cross-cultural management, intercultural conflict, and culture shock.
