Linguistic Geography

Author Danko Šipka

The present book is an account of cross-cultural linguistic differences between Serbian and various other languages. Each of the 28 chapters addresses one concrete lexical field, e.g., numbers, colors, kinship terms, food, etc. Using a great number of diversified examples, the author reveals underlying mechanisms of cross-cultural differences in the lexicon.
