Description: In a highly readable and lively text, the authors explore the way language mirrors our cultural assumptions, especially those concerned with gender distinctions. Focusing on contemporary issues, they draw on their knowledge of sociolinguistics and other languages to illustrate how sexism may be hidden by habits of language. In making the reader aware of these, they suggest options for change.Language and the Sexes synthesizes a wide range of up-to-date information and research under several topics: naming, stereotypes of language behavior, the politics of conversation, forms of address, asymmetry in vocabulary, and possibilities of reform. The book concludes with suggested projects related to these topics, guidelines for non-discriminatory language use, and an extensive bibliography.
