Talk is crucial to the way our identities are constructed, altered, and defended. Feminist scholars in particular have only begun to investigate how deeply language reflects and shapes who we think we are. This volume of previously unpublished essays, the first in the new series Studies in Language and Gender, advances that effort by bringing together leading feminist scholars in the area of language and gender, including Deborah Tannen, Jennifer Coates, and Marcyliena Morgan, as well as rising younger scholars. Topics explored include African-American drag queens, gender and class on the shopping channel, and talk in the workplace.

"Overall, this is an impressive collection, which makes a useful contribution to the reworking of language and gender studies. It is particularly successful in bringing recent feminist theory to bear on earlier feminist and pre-feminist linguistics, and in continuing to bring together research on 'bad subjects'-marginal voices and emergent transgressive identities." --Language in Society "Given the maturity of language and gender as afield of study, a series devoted to it is long overdue and most welcome. The maturity of the field is reflected in the scope of the first volume on identity formation and in its engagement with theory. . .A valuable and engaging feature of the book is that, at the same time as it contributes to the consolidation of new theoretical positions, it does not lose touch with earlier 'moments' in the field of language and gender. . .This is an impressive collection, which makes a useful contribution to the reworking of language and gender studies. It is particularly successful in bringing recent feminist theory to bear on earlier feminist and pre-feminist linguistics, and in continuing to bring together research on 'bad subjects' -- marginal voices and emergent transgressive identities."--Language in Society
