This innovative and provocative work introduces complexity theory and its application to both the study of language and the study of material culture. The book begins with a wide-ranging theoretical background, covering the areas of dialect geography, the anthropological study of material culture, and a general introduction to the study of complex adaptive systems. Following this general introduction, the principles of complexity theory are demonstrated in data drawn from linguistics and material culture studies. Language and Material Culture further highlights the principles of complexity through a series of case studies, using data from the Linguistic Atlas, colonial American inventories and the Historic American Building Survey. LMC shows that language and material culture are intertwined as they interact within the same cultural complex system. The book is designed for students in courses that focus on language variation, American English and material culture, in addition to general courses on applications of complex systems.

Chelsey Hansen has overcome many obstacles in life.

In a collection of creatively presented poems and prose, Chelsey blends spoken word, rap lyricism, and texting conventions with emojis while leading others through her personal story while sharing an important message that history does not have to repeat itself. Throughout writings inspired by her commitment to personal growth and her devotion to her two children, Chelsey provides poignant insight into the workings of her mind, heart, and soul as she determinedly puts one foot in front of the other and made her way out of the darkness and into the light of a new chapter.
Clearly written, well-organized, and comprehensive, Language Development: An Introduction is the most widely used text in its area. With its updated coverage of pre-school and school-age language development and increased coverage of multicultural issues, the new fourth edition continues its thorough coverage of the five major areas of language. Within a practical, chronological framework, Language Development: An Introduction examines every aspect of syntax, morphology, semantics, phonology, and pragmatics. It also explores early cognition and presymbolic communication -- topics not often found in introductory texts -- with a chapter on language variations, a strengthened chapter on learning and teaching language, and a renewed emphasis on pragmatics. The author presents even the most complex, technical concepts at an appropriate level for beginning students. In doing so, he has created a text that will be useful to future parents, educators, psychologists, and speech-language pathologists.
