Gender & Language offers a broad and accessible introduction to the study
of gender and language for those new to the subject. The book introduces
both theoretical and applied perspectives, identifying and explaining the
relevant frameworks and drawing on a range of activities/examples of how
gender is constructed in discourse.
The book is divided into 3 parts. Part I covers the historical background
to the study of gender and language, moving on through past theoretical
approaches to a discussion of current debates in the field, with a
particular emphasis on the role of discourse analysis. In part II, gender
is examined in context with chapters focussing on gender and language in
education, the mass media, and the workplace. Finally, Part III briefly
looks at key principles and approaches to gender and language research and
includes activities, study questions, and resources for teachers in the field.
Rich with examples and investigative activities drawn from current debates
and events, this book is designed to be appealing and informative and will
capture the imaginations of readers from a range of backgrounds and

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as such can
receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 501(c) Non Profit
organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These donations can be offset against
your federal and sometimes your state tax return (U.S. tax payers only). For more
information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact your financial advisor.
Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any gift
you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your contacting your human
resources department and sending us a form that the EMU Foundation fills in and returns
to your employer. This is generally a simple administrative procedure that doubles the
value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment
to check if your company operates such a program.
