Recensie

"Foley′s book illustrates quite convincingly that ′Linguistics without anthropology is sterile, anthropology without linguistics is blind′(Hockett 1973: 675)" Gunter Senft, Max–Planck–Institute for Psycholinguistics

"I applaud Foley for having overcome one of the main constraints of structuralist – inspired approaches to analysis." Peter Muhlhausler, University of Adelaide
