Language and woman's place by Robin Tolmach Lakoff( Book )

90 editions published between 1972 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 1,859 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this original investigation, Robin Lakoff uncovers those roots of our language that classify and delineate the sexes. Why are parallel words--one applying to masculine beings, the other to feminine--not also parallel in their range of use and connotation? Why have "bachelor/spinster" or "master/mistress? come to mean such widely different things? Language and Woman's Place points out this parallelism as symptomatic of the nonparallelism in the roles of the sexes and as further reinforcement of a social disparity."--Publisher's description
The language war by Robin Tolmach Lakoff( Book )

24 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 1,143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lakoff shows that the struggle for power and status at the end of the century is being played out as a war over language. Controlling language is a basis for all power, she says, and therefore, it's worth fighting for. As a result, newly emergent groups, especially blacks and women, are contending with middle-to-upper-class white men for a share in "language rights." Lakoff's introduction to linguistic theories and the philosophy of language lays the groundwork for an exploration of news stories that meet what she calls the UAT (Undue Attention Test). As the stories became the subject of talk-show debates, late-night comedy routines, Web sites, and magazine articles, they were embroidered with additional meanings, depending on who was telling the story. Race, gender, or both are at the heart of these stories, and each one is about the right to construct meanings from language - in short, to possess power. Because language tells us how we're connected to one another, who has power and who doesn't, the stories reflect the language war."--Jacket

Broadening the horizon of linguistic politeness( Book )

17 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of 19 papers celebrates the coming of age of the field of politeness studies, now in its 30th year. It begins with an investigation of the meaning of politeness, especially linguistic politeness, and presents a short history of the field of linguistic politeness studies, showing how such studies go beyond the boundaries of conventional linguistic work, incorporating, as they do, non-language insights. The emphasis of the volume is on non-Western languages and the ways linguistic politeness is achieved with them. Many, if not most, studies have focused on Western languages, but the languages highlighted here show new and different aspects of the phenomena."--Jacket
