What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Advance praise: 'This is no ordinary textbook. Eckert and McConnell-Ginet, two of the most important scholars writing in sociolinguistics and semantics today, have established a new direction for research in the field of language and gender. There is a reason that this now classic text is being reissued in second edition: no other book in this field makes a more convincing case for the crucial interdependence of language, gender, and sexuality in the formation of diverse twenty-first-century subjectivities. Revised to include all the provocative research directions of the last decade, this new edition of Language and Gender is a must-read for students and scholars who are engaged in the grounded analytics of social life.' Kira Hall, University of Colorado
