      (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.
