Gendered Talk at Work examines how women and men negotiate their gender
identities as well as their professional roles in everyday workplace

- written accessibly by one of the field's foremost researchers

- explores the ways in which gender contributes to the interpretation of
meaning in workplace interaction

- uses original and insightfully analyzed data to focus on the ways in
which both women and men draw on gendered discourse resources to enact a
range of workplace roles

- illustrates how a qualitative analysis of workplace discourse can throw
light on the many ways in which workplace discourse provides a resource for
constructing gender identity as one component of our complex socio-cultural

"Janet Holmes's account of gender and workplace discourse represents
sociolinguistic scholarship at its best. Her detailed and wide-ranging
analysis of language in interaction provides unique insights into the
linguistic culture of the workplace and challenges stereotypical
conceptions of gendered speaking styles - an invaluable resource." -- Joan
Swann, The Open University

"Gendered Talk at Work offers rich empirical texture to support subtle and
careful analysis of gender in workplace talk. Janet Holmes's highly
readable yet theoretically sophisticated book will be required reading not
just for sociolinguists but for everyone interested in promoting gender
equity in employment." -- Sally McConnell-Ginet, Cornell University
