Description:

This book presents cross-cultural research on gender as it is lexically and
socially categorized in electronic media. For the purposes of the study,
the authors have compiled a corpus of gender terms from online thesauruses
to show how new technologies interact with gender categorizations in
different languages, and how these are related to their respective culture
and society.

Each language is examined within the same theoretical framework, functional
semantics, focusing on lexicon. This common empirical ground facilitates
cross-language comparison. The contributors examine languages from around
the world, including the Indo-European, Semitic, Uralic and Austro-Asiatic
families.

This cutting-edge research book will be of interest to academics working in
the fields of corpus linguistics, and gender studies.
