Title: Women, Men and Everyday Talk
Written By: Jennifer Coates
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/title.aspx?pid=545651
Description:

Women, Men and Everyday Talk brings together a selection of some of the author's key papers on language and gender, and provides an overview of the development of language and gender studies over the last 30 years, with particular emphasis on conversational data and on single sex friendship groups. The main theme running throughout the book is that gender plays a significant role in the construction of the linguistic landscape of our everyday lives. These lively essays on language and gender topics are illustrated with examples from the author's data-base of spontaneous talk, and are written in an accessible style.
