    Language is associated with social relations and is a channel for people to participate in various social activities. This captivating volume explores the significant role of language in different aspects of social life, including identity, class, ancestry, gender relations, status, and hierarchy. Language plays various roles in society, plus society also works in a similar manner. If one of them does not exist, the other will be impacted. Language is the main tool used for communication, establishing social peace and direction, demonstrating authority and power, and achieving goals. For this reason, some of the topics discussed in this volume include: chapter 3: language and culture chapter 4: social class and language chapter 5: psychology of language development, chapter 6: social interaction, and chapter 7: social explanation of cognitive development. However, if used improperly, language can also destroy society. It must abide by the societal rules to avoid conflicts and cover the boundaries of personal differences. The volume uses data from various languages and societies to show that language is not just a basic form of social behavior. It is equally an effective tool for people to develop models of social behavior. Anyone interested in the connection between language, society, and culture will welcome this volume.
