Item description for Way With Words (Institute for Comparative Research in Human Culture) by Ingjerd Hoem...

What is the relationship between language and culture? This book explores this issue through a focus on comparative practice in the atoll society of Tokelau in the South Pacific. Through ethnographic descriptions of 'men's talk' and 'women's talk' what is defined as knowledge' emerges. Local attitudes towards language and aesthetics are shown to influence communicative practices. The issue of power is addressed through a perspective that takes the social distribution of knowledge into account. Issues that bear on cultural identity, as they have emerged throughout the last decades are intimately connected with current communicative practices

Reviews - What do customers think about Way With Words (Institute for Comparative Research in Human Culture)?

Most up-to-date book on Tokelau  Dec 24, 2004
If you are going to this atoll for what ever reason, this book are even more important then any travel guide you are taking with you. It was my most important book during my 10 weeks South Pacific travel in 2004.

I was in Tokelau from 22 Nov. to 16 Dec. 2004 and read this book while I was in Nukunonu as a tourist.

The book describes very well how the life is in Tokelau. Although it's mainly focused on the language related to the society - this gives any traveller a very good insight how the life in atoll really is. It's sometimes heavy to read, but it gave me very usefull insight in understanding of the Tokelau'en society.
