Linguistic anthropology is concerned with the many ways that language and communication make us what we are as human beings and affect our daily social and cultural lives. Topics covered include: evolution of language; how language and culture affect the way we know the world; language acquisition; and language and communicative behaviors associated with social classes, races and genders.
