Linguistic Typology and Hunter-Gatherer Languages


Bickel, Balthasar; Nichols, Johanna (2020). Linguistic Typology and Hunter-Gatherer Languages. In: Güldemann, Tom; McConvell, Patrick; Rhodes, Richard. The Language of Hunter-Gatherers. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 67-75.

Abstract

It has long seemed plausible that the languages of hunter-gatherer societies might be systematically different from those of food producers. Compared to food-producing societies, hunter-gatherer societies are usually smaller and less complex, with lower population density. They are often based on kinship as a main organizing factor and usually lack large-scale sociopolitical organization with its concomitant traits such as language standardization.
