Feminism, as a movement for social change, has always recognized the significance of language in both theory and practice. In the new feminist scholarship of the past two decades, theories about language have played an important part in attempts to understand and transform women's lives. Feminism and Linguistic Theory is a critical but comprehensive and accessbile introduction to recent work in this area. It ranges over a wide and varied field; not only does it review work in linguistics and other mainstream disciplines, but the alternative currents of radical feminist, Lacanian and postmodernist linguistic thought are given detailed consideration.

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".

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.

»Quell der Einsamkeit« erzählt die Geschichte von Stephen Gordon, einer Frau aus der britischen Oberschicht, die eigentlich ein Sohn hätte werden sollen. Von Kind an hat Stephen das Gefühl, dass mit ihr etwas nicht stimmt - dass sie anders ist: Sie trägt gern Männerkleidung, begeistert sich für Fuchsjagd und Fechtkunst und verliebt sich von früher Jugend an in Frauen - zunächst in das Hausmädchen Collins, später in die mondäne Angela Crossby, deren eifersüchtigen Ehemann Stephen durch ihre Bewunderung seiner Rosenzucht zu beschwichtigen sucht. Als Krankenwagenfahrerin im Ersten Weltkrieg lernt Stephen schließlich Mary Llewellyn kennen und lieben. Die beiden Frauen gehen in den zwanziger Jahren nach Paris, schaffen sich zusammen ein Heim und schließen Freundschaften, doch ihr gemeinsames Glück ist massivem gesellschaftlichen Druck ausgesetzt ... »Quell der Einsamkeit« ist ein bis heute faszinierender historischer Roman und kann als ein Vorläufer von Leslie Feinbergs »Stone Butch Blues« gelten. Er löste Debatten über Sexualität, Homosexualität und Geschlechterrollen aus, die noch immer andauern.
