This chapter discusses the importance to the anthropologist of the command of language. Speaking “the language,” Clifford Geertz held, was the ethical and epistemological diacritic of the discipline. Paul Hyman’s presence showed that making no attempt to demonstrate the aforementioned mastery could show us many things about those observed as well as those authorized to observe them.

Keywords:   anthropology, language, Clifford Geertz, diacritic, Paul Hyman
