Whether you are familiar with linguistic anthropology or not, this book will change the way you approach language and is written in such a coherent way that one can grasp and use the often technical vocabulary included. Agha has a particular insight into the nature of language and its place in society. I highly recommend this for anyone who is interested in developing a robust and insightful approach to sociolinguistics or linguistic anthropology.

Offers a surprisingly comprehensive view of language in society, one that works in some of the fundamental insights and concepts of linguistic anthropology, like indexicality, performativity, and other buzzwords.

Style is dense but very coherent. Highly recommended.
