Title: The Sociolinguistics Reader Volume 2: Gender and Discourse
Edited By: Jenny Cheshire
Peter Trudgill
Description:

Volume 2 of this two-volume text looks first at patterns of language
variation, how gender identities are accomplished through language, and the
importance of gender in accounting for language behavior. It goes on to
examine sociolinguistic issues surrounding discourse, with reference to the
communication of affective meaning, conversational routines,
grammaticalization and language change, intertextuality, and cross-cultural
discourse patterns and their social implications.
