Reviews

'...a timely and much welcomed addition to the growing field of language and gender, offering invaluable insights into the relationship between gender and spoken discourse. It is a valuable collection for researchers and postgraduate students who want to get a sense of where language and gender research is heading... [A] strength of this volume is that all articles are written in a clear, accessible and engaging style. I would highly recommend the book to researchers working in the areas of language and gender, discourse analysis, pragmatics, sociolinguistics, and language and social interaction.' - Chit Cheung Matthew Sung, Discourse & Commuication

'[This book]offers rich insights into the expanding linguistic subfield of gender and spoken interaction...it is a great contribution that provides the reader with a better understanding of and deep insights into how gender is (re-)produced in spoken interaction across the lifespan.' - Pia Resnik, Rezensionen
