ethnologist ethnologist


  • (n) an anthropologist who studies ethnology


  1. To find primitive virtues, the ethnologist must go all the way to the Onas, who lived in cold Tierra del Fuego.
  2. Always well off, he could afford to become an amateur ethnologist.


  • Mr. Lévi-Strauss spoke of "the profound reasons for which an ethnologist could feel in connivance with UNESCO's missions, despite the apparently diverse domains."
