Summary
"This volume collects Sally McConnell-Ginet's most important published articles in the last twenty years, which circle around the following themes: language users are actively engaged in making meanings, both as speakers and listeners; linguistics systems and socio-political institutions constrain, but do not determine, communicative possiblities; language is essential to understanding gender and sexuality and their connection to ethnicity, class, race, and other parts of social identity"--
