Reviews
'Writing from her own experience, McConnell-Ginet shares valuable insights from scholars and experts, ceding authority to others who can add their expertise to her work. This is academic writing at its best and its most generous. Both timely and timeless.' R. Shapiro, Choice
'... an impressive accomplishment and a valuable resource on its own, and the illuminating applications of linguistic theory make the resource yet richer ... McConnell-Ginet's extensive use of case studies and the application of a wide variety of theoretical tools will serve as useful resources for researchers who wish to address any of the socially important linguistic phenomena that McConnell-Ginet presents ... it will be a useful tool for teaching at a variety of levels, as it provides brief, accessible discussions of a wide variety of tools from researchers from various disciplines, as well as helpful applications to concrete cases.' Gretchen Ellefson, Metascience
