Language and Gender Course: Textbook Suggestions
|Submitter Email:||click here to access email|
I have just found out that I will teach an undergraduate version of
Language & Gender next fall. I was wondering if you might have any
suggestions for a textbook. The course is taken mostly by first- and
second-year students who have no background in linguistics and in gender
studies, and I typically devote one third of the course to issues of sexism
in language and two thirds to how language is used by women and men. In the
past, I have used Mary Talbot’s textbook and found it quite good, but the
book is getting relatively old (published already 10 years ago), and one of
my colleagues informed me that it was not available last year (I haven’t
checked what its status this year).
Any suggestions you might have would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
