Date: Mon, 6 Jan 1997 13:55:00 CST From: Edward Callary Subject: text for language and gender I need suggestions on a book for the language and gender portion of a general intro to sociolinguistics. For the students I have (beginning grad level with an unbelievable variety of backrounds, from business majors and law students to disgruntled sentence parsers), I would like something resonably short, approachable, with lots of examples, and no particular axe to grind. Suggestions are most welcome. Edward Callary English Dept Northern Ill Unit DeKalb Il 60115
