One thing that has so much to do with life’s existence is that people by nature are social beings. However, they are not expected to just exist; they have to live. As such, they have to communicate.
Knowledge in anthropology and anthropological linguistics can help facilitate students to understand more about human beings from their primitive culture down to their present cultural understanding.
This Learning Guide explores on the language being used in the anthropological point of view ranging from folk wisdom to modern cultured expression.
