Linguistic exogamy, anyone?

Babel issue 8 August 2014 Fish People

 

I am pleased to share with you my piece on Jean Jackson’s seminal research on the Tukanoan people of the Columbian Vaupés (above), featured in the August 2014 issue of Babel, the language magazine. If, like me, you are fascinated by the wide, wonderful world of human language, I urge you to read and subscribe to this University of Huddersfield publication. It’s a beautiful glossy magazine. Most of the contributors are scholars, but the writing is accessible to the general reader. To subscribe, find a link on my home page under Publications.
