Divine reader on language, gender and sexuality ... Livia and Hall have done a worhtwhile job by selecting the articles and presenting them in a well-structured collection of queer writing ... On the whole I think that this collection is highly recommendable. It fills a gap in the literature on the market on gender studies, is accessible and should be inviting to all kinds of readers, queer or straight or somewhere in between. Journal of Gender Studies
Queerly Phrased is a groundbreaking collection of previously unpublished essays that examine the relationship between language and the construction of gender and sexuality. Bridging the gap between sociolinguistics and gay studies, the contributors draw on traditional models of language anaylsis of well as recent developments in gender theory to show how language plays a crucial role in the creation of culture and its representation.
