It has been more than three decades since the publication of Robin Lakoff's pioneering work on language and gender, Language and Women's Place (1975). It seems timely and important to examine language and gender issues in a variety of cultures and language groups with new research questions. This workshop will address general issues of language and gender with special attention to (1) language and inequalities between men and women, (2) politics, gender and conceptual metaphors and (3) politeness and languages of men and women.

Submission of Abstracts:
A two-page abstract including everything should be sent electronically to both cil18cil18.org and hskimkonyang.ac.kr. An MS Word and/or .pdf file may be accepted.

Important Dates:
-Deadline for Abstract Submission: May 31, 2007

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.
