Gender and Language
Surveys recent and classic work in language and gender from a sociolinguistic perspective. It covers issues such as: how the category “gender” has developed over time in sociolinguistics; what the relationship is between gender identities and sexual identities; how the ways we talk and act intersect with non-linguistic behaviour to express gender identities.
