Language and sexuality by Deborah Cameron( Book )

25 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in English and held by 818 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

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 words between the spaces : buildings and language by Thomas A Markus( Book )

13 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using language - speaking and understanding it - is a defining ability of human beings, woven into all human activity. It is therefore inevitable that it should be deeply implicated in the design, production and use of buildings. Building legislation, design guides, competition and other briefs, architectural criticism, teaching and scholarly material, and the media all produce their characteristic texts. When these prescribe what is to be built then, in a sense, they can be said to 'design' the eventual building. When they describe what is already built they are formative of our judgement and responses. The authors, one a linguist, the other an architect and historian, examine how such texts relate to issues of national identity, power structures, the creation of heritage, and the evaluation of projects by professional and lay critics. The role of images in these texts is crucial and is discussed in detail. The authors use texts about such projects as Berlin's new Reichstag, Scotland's new Parliament, and the Auschwitz concentration camp museum to clarify the interaction between texts, design, critical debate and response.; Texts such as Prince Charles's 'A vision of Britain' and the 1919 Tudor Walters report on 'Housing for the Working Classes' had a wide influence on thinking, debate and, ultimately, on what was built and what was left unbuilt. Through a close reading of these and other texts the authors examine how the underlying ideological forces worked through language. Finally they discuss how questions about language and texts might influence both the teaching and the practice of architecture

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

6 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 46 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. Cameron examines closely the claims of a number of popular self-help books on the subject, and then proceeds to show how many of the more supposedly scientific books rely on a form of "neurobabble" to make similar claims about the alleged hard-wired intellectual differences between men and women. The question then becomes, why is it that this essentialist view has caught on? Cameron suggests that it is in part a way of responding to the pervasive anxiety brought about by massive social changes in the roles of men and women. She also cautions that this new essentialism is having potentially drastic consequences on the theories and practice of how boys and girls, men and women, are educated
