"Those who have followed the discussion of language ideology over the years will find it illuminating to track its shifts. At the same time, readers unfamiliar with the topic...will find this volume sufficiently self-contained to follow."--Anthropological Linguistics
"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
