Sociolinguistics from the Periphery

By Sari Pietikäinen, Alexandra Jaffe, Helen Kelly-Holmes, Nik Coupland

Sociolinguistics from the Periphery "presents a fascinating book about change: shifting political, economic and cultural conditions; ephemeral, sometimes even seasonal, multilingualism; and altered imaginaries for minority and indigenous languages and their users"

Title: Language, the Sexes and Society
Written By: Philip M. Smith
URL: http://www.blackwellpublishers.co.uk/
Description:

Recent research has set out clearly enough how men and women use language
in different ways. But this research has frequently failed to identify the
social, psychological and linguistic processes that underlie sex
differences in language. Philip Smith adopts here a completely fresh
approach. In studying the various roles that language, speech and
communication play in relations between the sexes, he identifies and
illuminates the processes involved- such as stereotyping, social
categorization and discrimination.
