Language and Gender Reviews

'This book marks a timely intervention in the field of language and gender research and provides students and researchers alike with essential primary materials. The book contains articles from a very wide range of disciplines; if you think that [it] will contain all of the usual suspects, then prepare to be surprised - there are extracts on masculinity, corpus linguistics, post-structuralist linguistics, fairy tales, ELT textbooks, queer theory, and social networks ... An ideal textbook for gender and language courses.' - Sara Mills, Sheffield Hallam University, UK

'Drawing on an impressive bibliographical list, the ten units of the first section summarize the findings of some of the most important studies which have marked the development of research regarding the language-gender relations ... well-documented, comprehensive, user-friendly and challenging ... I highly recommend it for both teaching and research purposes.' - Gabriela Iuliana Colipca, University of Galati, Romania
