Abstract:

This book makes an innovative contribution to the relatively young field of
Queer Linguistics. Subscribing to a poststructuralist framework, it presents a
critical, deconstructionist perspective on the discursive construction of
heteronormativity and gender binarism from a linguistic point of view. On the
one hand, the book provides an outline of Queer approaches to issues of
language, gender and sexual identity that is of interest to students and
scholars new to the field. On the other hand, the empirical analyses of
language data represent material that also appeals to experts in the field.
The book deals with repercussions of the discursive materialisation of
heteronormativity and gender binarism in various kinds of linguistic data. These
include stereotypical genderlects, structural linguistic gender categories
(especially from a contrastive linguistic point of view), the discursive
sedimentation of female and feminine generics, linguistic constructions of the
gendered body in advertising and the usage of personal reference forms to create
characters in Queer Cinema. Throughout the book, readers become aware of the
wounding potential that gendered linguistic
forms may possess in certain contexts.
