>>> Download Gender and Discourse eBook <<<From Library Journal Linguistics professor Tannen (You Just Don't Understand: Women andMen in Conversation, LJ 4/1/92) presents five previously published theoretical essays, eachrevised and introduced for the specialist and accompanied by notes and references. Anintroduction describes her research methods and conflicts surrounding interdisciplinary genderstudies. Included is a study that was crucial in motivating her to study gender and languagefurther. This is not a mere working over of earlier papers but a useful thematic compilation forlarger public and all academic libraries.Helen Rippier Wheeler, formerly with the Univ. of California at Berkeley, SLISCopyright 1994 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refersto the edition. From Kirkus Reviews In attempt to defend and expand upon her theories of miscommunication between men and women, sociolinguist Tannen provides the scholarlyunderpinnings of her 1990 bestseller, You Just Don't Understand. The material included in thesefive previously published and ponderous essays differs from Tannen's earlier book primarily inthat it is addressed to a jury of her academic peers. Jargon abounds throughout, from terms like``kinesic/proxemic analogue'' to ``the polysemy of power and solidarity.'' However, the centralideas are quite familiar: Pervasive miscommunication between men and women is due, in largepart, to a complex set of ``cross- cultural'' and stylistic differences; though men do tend todominate women in society, their domination of women in conversation is not necessarily bornof an intent to dominate; linguistic strategies (such as interruption) can mean different things indifferent instances; and understanding style differences allows for adjustments without castingblame on either gender. Also repeated are many of the studies and examples Tannen citeselsewhere (Marianne and Johan's conversational strategies in Ingmar Bergman's Scenes From aMarriage; videotaped dialogues between eight pairs of same-sex friends). Tannen is at her mostinteresting (and original) in the introduction, in which she elaborately defends her own ``culturedifference theory and research.'' Responding primarily to her scholarly critics who see genderand language according to models of power and dominance, rather than cultural differences, sheinsists that one does not preclude the other. Though she does not convince so much as piqueinterest in the debates raging in her field, this is one of the book's more compelling sections.This may offer intrepid Tannen fans or academicians worthy bits of information and insight, butgeneral readers are likely to find little reward in this dense tome. -- Copyright ?©1994, KirkusAssociates, LP.
