"Routledge Applied Linguistics" is a series of comprehensive resource books, providing students and researchers with the support they need for advanced study in the core areas of English language and Applied Linguistics.
Each book in the series guides readers through three main sections, enabling them to explore and develop major themes within the discipline. Section A, Introduction, establishes the key terms and concepts and extends readers' techniques of analysis through practical application. Section B, Extension, brings together influential articles, sets them in context, and discusses their contribution to the field. Section C, Exploration, builds on knowledge gained in the first two sections, setting thoughtful tasks around further illustrative material. This enables readers to engage more actively with the subject matter and encourages them to develop their own research responses. Throughout the book, topics are revisited, extended, interwoven and deconstructed, with the reader's understanding strengthened by tasks and follow-up questions.
"Language and Gender: "
Presents an up to date introduction to language and gender study
Includes diverse work and readings from a range of cultural contexts
Represents various methodological approaches to help students with their own exploration
Written by experienced teachers and researchers in the field, Corpus Based language Studies is an essential resource for students and researchers of Applied Linguistics.

'This book marks a timely intervention in the field of language and gender research and provides students and researchers alike with essential primary materials. The book contains articles from a very wide range of disciplines; if you think that this book will contain all of the usual suspects, then prepare to be surprised - there are extracts on masculinity, corpus linguistics, post-structuralist linguistics, fairy tales, ELT textbooks, queer theory, and social networks. This would make an ideal textbook for gender and language courses.' - "Professor Sara Mills, Sheffield Hallam University, UK"
