This is the first of a three-volume comprehensive reference work on
"Gender across Languages", which provides systematic descriptions of
various categories of gender (grammatical, lexical, referential,
social) in 30 languages of diverse genetic, typological and
socio-cultural backgrounds.

Among the issues discussed for each language are the following: What
are the structural properties of the language that have an impact on
the relations between language and gender? What are the consequences
for areas such as agreement, pronominalization and word-formation? How
is specification of and abstraction from (referential) gender achieved
in language? Is empirical evidence available for the assumption that
masculine/male expressions are interpreted as generics? Can tendencies
of variation and change be observed, and have alternatives been
proposed for a more equal linguistic treatment of women and men? This
volume (and its follow-up volumes) will provide the much-needed basis
for explicitly comparative analyses of gender across languages. All
chapters are original contributions and follow a common general
outline developed by the editors. The book contains rich
bibliographical and indexical material.

Languages of Volume I: Arabic, Belizean Creole, Eastern Maroon Creole,
English (American, New Zealand, Australian), Hebrew, Indonesian,
Romanian, Russian, Turkish.
