Bibliographic information


'scholars with an interest in language and gender will find this collection informative and interesting, not least for the many striking textual examples reproduced in it. And for the practitioners of CDA, whether or not they count gender among their primary interests, the book is an essential reference.' - Deborah Cameron, Language in Society, 26:1 (2007)
