Social and Functional Approaches to Language and ThoughtBook - 1987
One of the most fundamental and recurring issues in the social sciences--the relation between language and thought--is examined in this work from a broad and coherent interdisciplinary perspective. Many of the great historical issues are also addressed and newly examined such as: the multifunctionality of language, the role of "natural logic" in the structuring of linguistic rules, and the place of linguistic disambiguation and repair in particular cultures.
