Rate this:
Words do not emerge in a cultural vacuum. They are revealing of speakers' values, cognitive preferences and social practices. With an engaging study of Danish cultural keywords, this book offers a new framework for understanding language-particular universes of meaning and lays the ground for comparative research into the diversity of semantic and cultural systems in contemporary Europe. The book is of compelling interest to anyone interested in language and cultural values, as well as for students and scholars in Scandinavian and European studies.
