Summary

Volume 2 of this two-volume text looks first at patterns of language variation, how gender identities are accomplished through language, and the importance of gender in accounting for language behavior. It goes on to examine sociolinguistic issues surrounding discourse, with reference to the communication of affective meaning, conversational routines, grammaticalization and language change, intertextuality, and cross-cultural discourse patterns and their social implications.
