ARTS, PROFESSIONS AND LANGUAGE: NOTES ON AN ETHNOLINGUISTIC APPROACH
Languages of publication
This is a brief ethnolinguistic approach to naval carpenters communities from the South of Bahia, Brazil. Lexical semantic aspects of the linguistic use are analyzed as reflexes of sociocultural practices and models. The data demonstrate that the language of the masters and naval carpenters is highly influenced by modifications they have gone through in their history. It is also assumed that the meanings labour has for those who perform it and the way the subjects are related to their environment strongly interferes in their speech. The study may also contribute to the consolidation of the Ethnolinguistcs as a useful framework to the analysis of lexical semantic phenomena in contemporary dialectological research.
