Description - Gender and Language by Christine Christie
This work introduces an approach to the study of language use that enables the relationship between meaning generation and gender to be explored. It presents a systematic look at pragmatic approaches such as relevance theory, speech act theory and politeness theory, introducing the reader to a series of analytical tools such as entailment, presupposition, implicature and textual coherence.
