"Readers will have much to learn from this rich and carefully edited body of research. Many of the subjects undertaken in this volume-language planning, honorifics, standardization, gossip, and oratory-are familiar to linguistic anthropologists. What these essays add is the ability to link their analyses, in explicit and often nuanced ways, to broader debates in social theory."--Language in Society
