Language and sexuality by Deborah Cameron( )

25 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in English and held by 2,224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How are sexuality and erotic desire expressed in language? Do gay men and lesbians have a language of their own? Does 'no' always mean no? Is sexual desire beyond words? This textbook looks at how we talk about sex and why we talk about it the way we do." "Drawing on a wide range of examples, from personal ads to phone sex, from sadomasochistic scenes to sexual assault trials, the book provides a clear introduction to the relationship between language and sexuality. Using a broad definition of 'sexuality', the book encompasses not only issues surrounding sexual orientation and identity - for instance whether gay men and lesbians use language differently from straight people - but also questions about the discursive construction of sexuality and the verbal expression of erotic desire." "This Textbook will be welcomed by students and researchers in sociolinguistics, linguistic anthropology and gender/sexuality studies, as well as anyone interested in the relationship between language and sex."--Jacket
Good to talk? : living and working in a communication culture by Deborah Cameron( )

21 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 1,837 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Good to Talk? is an attempt to look critically at what lies behind this upsurge of concern about talk in our workplaces, classrooms and private lives. It places these developments in historical context and relates their forms to the broader economic and social changes associated with globalization." "The book also poses questions about the social and political implications of talking about talking. Is 'communication' the key to solving the problems of modern life? Are the lessons in talking that are offered to us now the ones we most urgently need to learn? Is it time to challenge prevailing beliefs about what makes it good to talk?"--Jacket

The myth of Mars and Venus : do men and women really speak different languages? by Deborah Cameron( Book )

19 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 739 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A thriving industry of self-help manuals and popular science books has grown up in the last fifteen years, all based on the assertion that there are fundamental differences in the way that men and women use language to communicate. Whether the reason given is nature, nurture, or planet of origin, the 'Mars and Venus' story is widely accepted. But, asks Deborah Cameron, 'Why do so many people find it convincing?'" "Drawing on the findings of more than thirty years of academic research, Cameron dispels the myths to tell a much more complicated - and satisfying - story, and shows how selective and inaccurate is the picture presented by many popular writers. She also demonstrates that popular assumptions about 'male-female miscommunication' can have far-reaching consequences in many areas of life: for example, attitudes to sexual violence or discrimination in the work-place."--BOOK JACKET

More heat than light? : sex-difference science & the study of language by Deborah Cameron( )

6 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the Sedgewick lecture for 2012, Professor Deborah Cameron investigates the age-old question of whether men and women are different kinds of beings, both physically and intellectually. She begins by noting that in the 19th century that most writers saw men as being intellectually superior to women in their use of language. But she also observes that this position was gradually modified in the 20th century, that is, until the 1990s, when there was a sudden resurgence of the essentialist idea, this time with many writers concluding that women were programmed to be the better language users.
