Qs: Gender, Sexuality, and Language on the Internet

Editor for this issue: Danielle St. Jean <daniellelinguistlist.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.

To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.cfm.

I am doing a study on gender roles, sexuality, and the internet,
focusing on a culture that has come to exist on-line on specific websites.
I am looking for good resources on the relationships between
sex, gender, sexuality, and language, as well as information on what
these things look like off-line, so that I may compare on-line gender
norms to off-line gender norms.

I'm already aware of and making use of work by Durham, Eckert,
Goddard, Fausto-Sterling, Tannen, and Lakoff, but any other scholarly
works on the subject would be appreciated as they will allow me a
better view of both how these things are constructed off-line, and how
to best analyse the discussions I'm finding on-line. I'd appreciate
direction to anything in the field.

Thank you in advance for your time,

James Davis
