Linguistic Anthro is the "forgotten" subfield of anthropology. This text breaks down the importance of language as an experience that shapes thought and experience with the context of specific cultures. It's also debunks myth and stereotypes of communication and how people utilize it. Overall very interesting. The tex was easy to follow.
