"Blum has done an excellent job of including a range of articles featuring classics alongside new research and new queries. It is a superior resource."--Jack C. Shoemaker, Southern Methodist University
"Making Sense of Language displays a breadth and depth I have not seen in similar books on linguistic anthropology. Blum includes influential scholars outside of the field and her introductions really help place each part, each unit, and each article into a larger discussion. I appreciate the guidance provided by the questions, and how well-suited the book is overall to organizing an introductory course in linguistic anthropology."--Sherina Feliciano-Santos, University of South Carolina, Columbia
"Blum has done a remarkable service in identifying readings that are accessible to undergraduate audiences, and in intermixing these successfully with canonical texts in linguistic anthropology. I often recommend this text to colleagues and I'm thrilled that it's now available in a new edition."--Kathryn E. Graber, Indiana University
"I appreciate that Blum has approached the book from the perspective and experience of someone who has worked in four-field anthropology. That shines through in the selection of readings, which collectively cross a range of topical and even disciplinary concerns. Her introductions to each of the sections and the chapters are readable and conversational with a 'voice' that many will be able to relate to. Making Sense of Language simplifies the task of searching for and selecting relevant readings that are interesting--yet rigorous--to include in the course syllabi."--Rosalyn Negrón, University of Massachusetts, Boston
