Abstract:

"Gender Matters" presents a feminist linguistic analysis of texts - literature,
media and lyrics - and conversation. It explores how gender relates to and
shapes our understanding of sexism, reading and writing, politeness and public
speaking.

The essays in the book examine a range of questions: why is it necessary for
feminists to analyse or comment on sexism when sexism is widely regarded as
an anachronistic concern? How can feminists describe the effect of gender on
the experience of literature? Why are women considered more capable of private
rather than public speech? What is the relation between gender and politeness
and are women more polite than men? In analysing these themes, "Gender
Matters" highlights the insights and strengths of both second and third wave
feminist analysis for linguistics.

Linguistic Field(s): Sociolinguistics

Written In: English (eng)
