Cambridge.University.Press.Language.and.Gender.Feb.2003. Language and GenderLanguage and Gender is a new introduction to the study of the relation betweengender and language use, written by two of the leading experts in the field. Itcovers the main topics, beginning with a clear discussion of gender and ofthe resources that the linguistic system offers for the construction of socialmeaning. The body of the book provides an unprecedentedly broad and deepcoverage of the interaction betweenlanguage and social life, rangingfromnuances of pronunciation to conversational dynamics to the deployment ofmetaphor. The discussion is organized around the contributions languagemakes to situated social practice rather than around linguistic structures orgender analyses. At the same time, it introduces linguistic concepts in a waythatis suitable for nonlinguists.It is set to become the standard textbook forcourses on language and gender.penelope eckert is Professor ofLinguistics, Professor (by courtesy) ofCultural and Social Anthropology and Director of the Program in FeministStudies at Stanford University. She has published the ethnography Jocks andBurnouts: Social Categories and Identity in the High School (1989), the bookLinguistic Variation as Social Practice (2000), and many linguistic articles.sally mCconnell-ginet is Professor of Linguistics at the DepartmentofLinguistics, Cornell University.

We decided to combine these projects into a joint effort torethink approaches to language and gender, and particularly to bringtogether our work in quite different areas of linguistics. Penny’s focusin linguistics has been on sociolinguistic variation, and she was em-ploying ethnographic methods to examine the embedding of linguisticpractice in processes of identity construction. Sally came to linguisticsfrom math and analytic philosophy, and has divided her career betweenteaching and research on language and gender, especially the prag-matic question of what people (as opposed to linguistic expressions)mean, and on formal semantics. Both of us, in our individual writingand teaching, had begun to think of gender and language as comingtogether in social practice. Penny was then at the Institute for Researchand Learning in Palo Alto, California, where she worked with Jean Laveand Etienne Wenger. Their notion of community of practice provided animportant theoretical construct for our thinking about gender, aboutlanguage use, and about how the two interact. We owe special gratitudeto Jean and Etienne.Each time we thought we’d finished working together, a new collab-oration would come up. Our Annual Review article appeared in early1992, and we presented a greatly abbreviated version as a talk at theSecond Berkeley Conference on Women and Language. In 1993, we gavea public talk at the LSAInstitute at the Ohio State University that grewinto the paper in the volume edited by Mary Bucholtz (who was a stu-dent in our Santa Cruz course) and Kira Hall in 1995. Early in 1997, atthe International Conference on the Social Psychology of Language, weparticipated in a session organized by Janet Holmes on communitiesof practice in language and gender research. With Miriam Meyerhoff,Janet edited a special issue of Language in Society, based on that sessionand including a paper from us.ix .
