(Language, Power and Social Process 4)
Based on an ethnographic study carried out in Spain, Gender,
Heteroglossia and Power proposes a new way of analyzing the relation
between language use and gender identity. The book will be of interest
primarily to researchers working within the fields of language and
gender, women's studies, cultural studies, ethnic relation,
bilingualism, code switching and maintenance and shift of minor
languages. The theoretical and methodological discussion is also
directly relevant to many researchers dealing with the study of
language in use: pragmatics, applied linguistics, sociolinguistics,
discourse analysis, conversational analysis, critical discourse
analysis. As such it can be a useful tool for courses in any of these
fields within higher education.
