Language and Sexuality

Contesting Meaning in Theory and Practice

Language and Sexuality explores the question of how linguistic practices and ideologies relate to sexuality and sexual identity, opening with a discussion of the emerging field of "queer linguistics" and moving from theory into practice with case studies of language use in a wide variety of cultural settings. The resulting volume combines the perspectives of the field’s top scholars with exciting new research to present new ideas on the ways in which language use intersects with sexual identity.
