Book Information


Title: Language and Culture
Subtitle: Global Flows and Local Complexity
Written By: Karen Risager
Series Title: Language and Intercultural Communication and Education

The book presents a new theory of the relationship between language and
culture in a transnational and global perspective. The fundamental view is
that languages spread across cultures, and cultures spread across
languages, or in other words, that linguistic and cultural practices flow
through social networks in the world along partially different paths and
across national structures and communities.
