'I can think of no more enjoyable or clear or generally approachable introduction to the most vexing problems in the study of language than Deborah Cameron's Feminism and Linguistic Theory. It offers a sterling example of the illuminations which are made possible when questions of gender are firmly at the heart of serious critical enquiry.' - Jane Miller, Institute of Education, University of London Feminism has always recognised the importance of language in both theory and practice; the new feminist scholarship of the last twenty years has made extensive use of theories about language in attempts to understand and transform women's lives. Feminism and Linguistic Theory is a critical introduction to this evolving body of work. Accessibly written and newly revised to take account of recent developments, its scope is broad, encompassing work in linguistics, anthropology, literary and cultural theory, psychoanalysis and postmodern philosophy.
