Linguistic LingField(s):  Discourse Analysis

Query:   Hello,

I am doing a study on gender roles, sexuality, and the internet,
focusing on a culture that has come to exist on-line on specific
websites. I am looking for good resources on the relationships between
sex, gender, sexuality, and language, as well as information on what
these things look like off-line, so that I may compare on-line gender
norms to off-line gender norms.

I'm already aware of and making use of work by Durham, Eckert,
Goddard, Fausto-Sterling, Tannen, and Lakoff, but any other scholarly
works on the subject would be appreciated as they will allow me a
better view of both how these things are constructed off-line, and how
to best analyse the discussions I'm finding on-line. I'd appreciate
direction to anything in the field.

Thank you in advance for your time,

James Davis
