BAAL Book Prize Winner 1996 In this award winning book Deborah Cameron takes a serious look at popular attitudes towards language and examines the practices by which people attempt to regulate its use. Instead of dismissing the practice of 'verbal hygiene', as a misguided and pernicious exercise, however, she argues that popular discourse about language values; good and bad, right and wrong, serves an important function for those engaged in it. A series of case-studies deal with specific examples of verbal hygiene: the regulation of 'style' by editors, the teaching of English grammar in schools, the movements for and against so-called 'politically-correct' language and the recent explosion of advice to women on how they can speak more effectively. In each case she argues that verbal hygiene provides a way of making sense of linguistic phenomena, and that it represents a symbolic attempt to impose order on the social world. Addressed to linguistics, professional language-users of all kinds, and to anyone interested in language and culture, Verbal Hygiene, calls for legitimate concerns about language and value to be discussed, by experts and lay-speakers alike, in a rational and critical spirit.

The book also shows how the insights offered by pragmatic analyses can inform debates surrounding the linguistic construction of gender.Each pragmatic approach is carefully explained and illustrated using practical examples that show how pragmatics can inform feminist analyses of naturally occurring language use across a range of contexts, including news texts, informal conversation, institutional dialogue and politicaldiscourse.Gender and Language demonstrates how the application of pragmatic concepts - such as entailment, presupposition, implicature and textual coherence - provides insights into the way that gender is implicated in meaning generation, and the way that language functions generally in relation toits socio-culturally situated users.

In diesem Einführungs- und Handbuch werden aktuelle soziologische (handlungstheoretische, phänomenologische und diskurstheoretische) sowie feministische Perspektiven auf den Körper rekonstruiert. Bei der synthetischen Zusammenführung geht es vor allem um eine kritische Auseinandersetzung mit Erträgen, Grenzen und Verkürzungen der jeweiligen Perspektive, insbesondere um das gesellschaftstheoretische Defizit gegenwärtiger (sozial-)konstruktvistischer Analysen. Mit Bourdieu und Kreckel werden Vergeschlechtlichungsprozesse, die den Körper formen und das leibliche Erleben des Geschlechts beeinflussen, auch als durch die soziale Ungleichverteilung gesellschaftlicher Ressourcen geprägte Prozesse begriffen. Ein abschließendes Kapitel zum Argentinischen Tango bringt die soziologischen Analysen "zum Tanzen".

Gender in Translation is a broad-ranging, imaginative and lively look at feminist issues surrounding translation studies. Students and teachers of translation studies, linguistics, gender studies and women's studies will find this unprecedented work invaluable and thought-provoking reading. Sherry Simon argues that translation of feminist texts - with a view to promoting feminist perspectives - is a cultural intervention, seeking to create new cultural meanings and bring about social change. She takes a close look at specific issues which include: the history of feminist theories of language and translation studies; linguistic issues, including a critical examination of the work of Luce Irigaray; a look at women translators through history, from the Renaissance to the twentieth century; feminist translations of the Bible; an analysis of the ways in which French feminist texts such as De Beauvoir's The Second Sex have been translated into English.
