Abstract:

This book argues for a multidisciplinary approach to the study of the
language of judges with respect to the issue of gender
discrimination. Drawing its inspiration from Dell Hymes' socially
constituted linguistics, the author examines the language of the
judicial opinions of four U.S. Supreme Court cases addressing social
and legal discrimination against women. Through a linguistic analysis
that is informed by a Foucauldian and feminist perspective, this book
addresses the complex issues of the power of judges and ideologies,
the politics of language use, and feminist contributions to the
subject of discrimination and women's rights. This book is most
suitable for researchers and students in cultural studies,
ethnography, feminist legal studies, forensic linguistics, gender
studies, ideology research, pragmatics, semiotics, and social studies.
