Title: Women, Men and Language, 3rd Edition
Subtitle: A Sociolinguistic Account of Gender Differences in Language
Written By: Jennifer Coates
URL: http://www.pearsoned.co.uk
Series Title: Studies in Language and Linguistics
Description:

'Women, Men and Language' is an essential introduction to the key area of
language and gender. It sketches the historical background, summarises
recent research and introduces students to the key issues in the field
using an unpretentious and clear style.

The book takes the reader from an initial 'men talk like this; women talk
like that' approach to a more nuanced idea of women and men performing
gender in their everyday interactions. It covers a range of sociolinguistic
research, looking at grammatical and phonological features a well as at
aspects of conversation such as compliments or swearing, and the growing
use of the word 'like' by younger speakers. This updated third edition
concludes with a new chapter summarising new developments and assessing
possible future trends for the area.
