Description:

This volume offers a representative selection of Sally McConnell-Ginet's
publications on language, gender and sexuality, which circle around the
following themes: language users are actively engaged in making meanings,
both as speakers and listeners; languages and socio-political institutions
constrain, but do not determine, communicative possibilities; attention to
language deepens understanding of gender and sexuality, including
connections to ethnicity, class, race, and other dimensions of social
identity and inequality.

* Sally McConnell-Ginet is one of the most influential linguists working in
the field of language and gender.
* This volume collects a dozen of her articles on language, gender, and
sexuality.
