This was the Introduction to Anthropology 2017 comment page for readings about language:
- Lavenda & Schultz chapter 9, “Why Is Understanding Human Language Important?” (261-284) in Anthropology: What Does it Mean to be Human?
- “How Language Shapes Thought” by Lera Boroditsky in Scientific American (2011). (This 2016 blog-post on How does language shape our worldview? also has useful links)
Note: Although I changed textbooks, I revisited the material on language and Boroditsky for the Intro-to-Anthro 2020 on Language.
