    • Offers the first systematic presentation of the relevance of “practice” for linguistics
    • Considers language as an embodied and temporally constituted practice
    • Explores language in the context of space, objects, and the media

    Aims and Scope

    For the first time, this volume shows the benefits of a praxeological approach to linguistics. It conceives of language, text, behavior, and communication as “practices.” A focus is placed on processuality, materiality, embodiment, and social routines. Instead of regarding language as an autonomous system, the contributions look at how actors use language in the context of embodied practices as shaped by social and cultural history.
