The big differences between groups of human beings are the result of culture, not race or  any other aspect of biology. o True Which of the following correctly identifies the sub-disciplines of anthropology? o Archaeology, Cultural Anthropology, Physical Anthropology, and Linguistic  Anthropology. All of the following statements about the understanding of culture in anthropology are correct except: o Culture is biologically and genetically transmitted from person to person.   WK 2 Globalization is the process of powerful, developed countries influencing less developed  countries and not vice versa. o False When researchers tried to teach human language to chimpanzees and gorillas, they found  that: o They did not display the same degree of complexity in their use of language as  humans demonstrate Influenced by Charles Darwin's theory of biological evolution, 19th century anthropologists  approached the study of culture in terms of cultural evolution and generally located cultures  along a continuum using the following categories: o savage, barbarian, civilized The Sapir-Whorf hypothesis suggests that: o The vocabulary and structure of a language influence how its speakers perceive  reality. Code-switching results from someone being confused about which language variety to use in a given situation. o False Language continuum   is a theory that suggests that languages have historically developed  into a continuum rather than into discrete languages with clear beginnings and endings. o True All of the following are aspects of hegemony, EXCEPT: o It is maintained through coercion Which statement about language and gender is true? o People are enculturated, or socialized, into different language practices based on  their assigned gender category All of the following are associated with Franz Boas, EXCEPT: o He did his fieldwork in the Trobriand Islands. If a person speaks a more “proper” form of English (such as SSAE instead of AA(V)E), then  their thought process will become more complex and rational. o False To an extent, members of a society share norms and values to which they generally adhere,  and in that sense, share a culture.   o True Anthropologists consider that all of the following are characteristics of culture, EXCEPT: o Practiced by as few as one individual.

Cultures are systems, so a change in one aspect of a culture is likely to result in changes in  other aspects of the culture.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
