Edited By: Helen Sauntson

Description:

Sexualities are perceived, constructed and represented in different ways in
various languages and cultures. This collection addresses how people use
various linguistic features to construct their sexual identities and
relationships and how membership of specific social groups, based on sexual
and lifestyle choices, may be signalled through language. The new research
presented in the chapters focuses on cross-cultural contexts and is
situated within a discussion of current trends and theories in relation to
language and sexuality.
