Abstract:

Note: This is the paperback edtition of a previously announced book.

Gender, Language and New Literacy presents cross-cultural research on
gender as it is lexically and socially categorized in electronic media. For
the purposes of the study, the authors have compiled a corpus of gender
terms from online thesauruses to show how new technologies interact with
gender categorizations in different languages, and how these are related to
their respective culture and society. Each language is examined within the
same theoretical framework, functional semantics, focusing on lexicon. This
common empirical ground facilitates cross-language comparison.

The contributors examine languages from around the world, including the
Indo-European, Semitic, Uralic and Austro-Asiatic families. This is a
cutting-edge research book that will be of interest to academics working in
the fields of corpus linguistics, and gender studies.

Linguistic Field(s): Sociolinguistics
                            Text/Corpus Linguistics
