"This account brings together twelve leading specialists from across the fields of linguistics, anthropology, philosophy, and psychology, to explore the relationship between language, culture, and social interaction. A range of major questions are discussed: How does language influence our perception of the world? How do new languages emerge? How do children learn to use language appropriately? What factors determine language choice in bi- and multilingual communities? How far does language contribute to the formation of our personalities?
