Qs: Frequency Lists, Sexist Lang in ESL Classroom

Editor for this issue: Renee Galvis <reneelinguistlist.org>


We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate. In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

I am looking for research on sexist language in esl classrooms and would
appreciate any suggestions. I am especially interested in esl classrooms
in Singapore, Hong Kong and Japan.
