Message 2: Language and Gender

Subject: Language and Gender
I am compiling a bibliography for an updated version of my "Women, Men and
Language" course. My plan is to take a multicultural/global approach to the
questions usually asked. Students need to be exposed to languages besides
English and to diverse populations in and out of the United States and England.
I am familiar with most of the work that has been published in recent years.
If you know of work that has been done that investigates language and gender in
little or under- studied groups that is not yet published, please let me
know. I am interested in comparisons of male and female speech as well as
the speech of same-sex groups.
