Linguistic anthropology evolved in the twentieth century in an environment that tended to reify language and culture.

On September 9, 1990, Bruce Graham, a playwright, watched
from home as his Philadelphia Eagles opened the season against
the New York Giants. Watching with him that Sunday night was
his high school drama teacher, Sandy Stefanowicz, who wore her

There were so many incredibly talented and giving people who

and meaningful direction. More than anyone else, Terry
made this book a reality....
