Title: Japanese Language, Gender, and Ideology
Subtitle: Cultural Models and Real People
Edited By: JanetS.Shibamoto Smith
URL: http://www.oup.com/us/catalog/general/?view=usa&ci=0195166183
Series Title: Studies in Language and Gender
Description:

Japanese Language, Gender and Ideology is a collection of previously
unpublished articles by established as well as promising young scholars in
Japanese language and gender studies. The contributors to this edited
volume argue that traditional views of language in Japan are cultural
constructs created by policy makers and linguists, and that Japanese
society in general, and language use in particular, are much more diverse
and heterogeneous than previously understood. This volume brings together
studies that substantially advance our understanding of the relationship
between Japanese language and gender, with particular focus on examining
local linguistic practices in relation to dominant ideologies. Topics
studies include gender and politeness, the history of language policy,
language and Japanese romance novels and fashion magazines, bar talk,
dictionary definitions, and the use of first-person pronouns. The volume
will substantially advance the agenda of this field, and will be of
interest to sociolinguists, anthropologists, sociologists, and scholars of
Japan and Japanese.
