1 Penelope Eckert and Sally McConnell-Ginet
Language and Gender
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2003; 0521654262 / 9780521654265; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Language and Gender is a new introduction to the study of the relation between gender and language use, written by two of the leading experts in the field. It covers the main topics, beginning with a clear discussion of gender and of the resources that the linguistic system offers for the construction of social meaning. The body of the book offers an unprecedentedly broad and deep coverage of the interaction between language and social life, ranging from nuances of pronunciation to conversational dynamics to the deployment of metaphor. The discussion is organized around the contributions language makes to situated social practice rather than around linguistic structures or gender analyses. At the same time, it introduces linguistic concepts in a way that is suitable for non-linguists. It is set to become the standard textbook for courses on language and gender. Contents 1. Constructing, deconstructing and reconstructing gender; 2. Linking the linguistic to the social; 3. Organizing talk; 4. Making social moves; 5. Positioning ideas and subjects; 6. Saying and implying; 7. Mapping the world; 8. Working the market: use of varieties; 9. Fashioning selves. Printed Pages: 378 with 11 line diagrams and 4 tables. 014758
