Title: Gender and the Language Religion
Edited By: Allyson Jule
Description:

This book contributes to an understanding of the complex relationship of
gender and language alongside religion and religious life as experienced by
various religious groups around the world. The intention is to put forward
current studies in the field of linguistics and explore how gender and
various religions intersect with language use. The universal and diverse
experience of religion provides for this unique collection of papers
concerning the use of language in religious liturgy, in religious
communities, and in interaction with identity. As such, the book will
attract students and researchers in discourse, gender studies and religious
studies.
