By Sari Pietikäinen, FinlandAlexandra Jaffe, Long BeachHelen Kelly-Holmes, and Nikolas Coupland

Book Information

   

Title: Gender and Politeness
Written By: Sara Mills
URL: http://www.cambridge.org/us/catalogue/catalogue.asp?isbn=0521009197
Series Title: Studies in Interactional Sociolinguistics 17
Description:

Challenging the notion that women are necessarily always more polite than
men (as language and gender literature claim), Sara Mills discusses the
complex relationship between gender and politeness. Mills argues that,
although women speakers, drawing on stereotypes of femininity, can appear
to be acting more politely than men, there are many circumstances where
women will act as "impolitely" as men.
