Title: Referential practice, language and lived space among the Maya
Authors: Hanks, William F.
Date: 1990
Source: Referential practice, language and lived space among the Maya. Chicago: University of Chicago Press. 580 p.
Abstract: Referential Practice is a dense and demanding work by a scholar with formidable theoretical sophistication and technical analytic skills in both linguistics and ethnography.... While Hanks's analysis will be of interest to specialists in deixis and to anthropologists working on such questions as the social construction of space and selfhood, its theoretical contribution is far more general: this is required reading for anyone who takes seriously such fashionable ideas as 'practice,' 'embodiment,' or 'indexicality.'
