9783820489798: A linguistic picture of women's position in society: A Polish-English contrastive study (Bamberger Beiträge zur Englischen Sprachwissenschaft / Bamberg Studies in English Linguistics)

A discussion of English and Polish gender systems, generic words, forms of address, referring expressions and other topics, provides evidence that in these two languages males and females are not treated equally. The main concern of this book is linguistic sexism. The data indicate that speakers of both languages treat male as the norm, attribute less desirable qualities to the speech and behaviour of women, stereotype women more than men, or simply make women linguistically invisible members of society.
