Title: New Perspectives on Language and Sexual Identity
Written By: Elizabeth Morrish
Helen Sauntson
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/title.aspx?PID=269249
Description:

New Perspectives on Language and Sexual Identity presents a range of new
and exciting data to illustrate and explore aspects of the relationship
between language and sexuality. Using data drawn from lesbian and gay
conversations and narratives, reflections on coming out, representations of
lesbians in film and erotic fiction, and representations of prominent gay
men in newspaper reports, the book exemplifies some of the ways in which
lesbians and gay men construct identity from among the symbolic resources
available within lesbian and gay communities of practice. The book uses
analytical techniques such as spoken discourse analysis, critical text
analysis and corpus linguistics to uncover and investigate how sexual
identities are discursively constructed across a range of real life
contexts and text types.
