The Handbook of Language and Gender

The Handbook of Language and Gender is a collection of articles written by a team of leading specialists in the field that examines the implications of gender ideologies for the ways we interact. The volume includes data and case-studies from interactions in a number of different social contexts and from a range of different communities, and theoretical discussions about the problems, pitfalls, and potential benefits of research on and discourses about gender.

This handbook provides a comprehensive, up-to-date, and stimulating picture of the field of language and gender for students and researchers in a wide range of disciplines, including linguistics, gender studies, communication, management, psychology, sociology, and anthropology.
