'Those who, like me, have used this book in their language and gender courses, will warmly welcome this up-date, which brings both the material surveyed and the perspectives covered into the 21st century. Jennifer Coates' lucid and engaging style continues to make this a very attractive text.'

'Women, Men and Language has served readers since its first publication as an accessible and balanced guide to the literature on gender differences in language. This revised edition extends the book's scope to reflect recent developments in theory and research, while retaining the clarity of earlier versions. Informative, wide-ranging and always readable, the updated text provides 21st century students and their teachers with an invaluable overview of an increasingly complex field. '
