Edited By Anita Auer, Daniel Schreier, and Richard J. Watts

This book "challenges the assumption that there is only one 'legitimate' and homogenous form of English or of any other language" and "supports the view of different/alternative histories of the English language and will appeal to readers who are skeptical of 'standard' language ideology."

Title: Gendered Discourse in the Professional Workplace
Written By: Loise Mullany
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/title.aspx?PID=274997
Series Title: Palgrave Studies in Professional and Organizational Discourse
Description:

Despite the inroads that women have made into the professions in recent
years, the glass ceiling is just as persistent as ever. Gendered Discourse
in the Professional Workplace aims to investigate the crucial role that
gendered discourses play in perpetuating workplace gender inequalities. A
range of interactional sociolinguistic data is analysed from ethnographic
case studies of businesses in which women and men managers perform a range
of stereotypical gendered speech styles when enacting their professional
identities. These interactions are scrutinized as part of a broader
interdisciplinary framework for analysis, which enables language, gender
and power to be scrutinized at both local and global levels. The importance
of academic research being of practical relevance to the community under
study and wider society as a whole is firmly emphasized, and practical
guidelines for conducting future projects are presented.
