Title: Ethnosyntax
Subtitle: Explorations in Grammar and Culture
Edited By: Nicholas J. Enfield
URL: http://www.oup-usa.org/isbn/0199249067.html
Description:

Meanings of cultural importance are found not only in words but also in the very grammar of a language. This exciting collection presents eleven original studies of the relationship between grammar, culture, and cognition, with data from languages and cultures from around the world. Contributors discuss a wide variety of grammatical phenomena. This book shows that the study of culture can help to understand how and why languages differ in the ways they do.
