Title: Slavic Gender Linguistics
Edited By: Margaret H. Mills
Series Title: Pragmatics & Beyond NS 61
Description:

This edited volume offers the first comprehensive collection devoted to the study of Slavic gender linguistics by a team of international Slavic linguists. It features eleven highly-original, data-driven contributions representing a variety of approaches to this understudied and underrepresented area of contemporary Slavic linguistics. For those working specifically in the field of gender linguistics, the collection presents the first English-language introduction to this vital area of sociolinguistic research based upon findings from contemporary Russian, Polish, Czech and other Slavic languages. For Slavic linguists, it presents a ground-breaking collection of sociolinguistic studies which advance Russian linguistic theory and further enhance it with new theoretical frameworks and analyses by which to view the Slavic data. Each of the contributions is sufficiently rich and varied in its conceptual design, theoretical approach, and potential for practical application in graduate seminars or courses in gender linguistics. The linguistic fields addressed by this collection include: pragmatics, discourse analysis, grammar, syntax, literary linguistics, cross-cultural linguistics, diachronic linguistics, and quantitative linguistics.
