Ancestral Voices – Martin Gaenszle | This book looks at various genres of ritual speech among the Mewahang Rai, all of which make use of a distinct ritual language, in order to situate the oral ritual texts in their ethnographic context. Combining the textual with a cultural approach, the author discusses the indigenous concept of tradition, the rhetorical and poetic features of ritual speech genres, and the discursive universe constructed through the texts. At the theoretical level, the book contributes to debates about ritualization and performance and to discussions in linguistic anthropology concerning the notions of formality, indexicality, entextualization and contextualization.
