Paul Baker s excellent introductory book effectively shows how corpus linguistics can be used to study language and gender. Employing contemporary real-life research case studies Baker shows, on the one hand, how people interested in Gender and Language can make use of corpora in their work, and, on the other hand, how corpus linguists who are not already familiar with Gender and Language studies might examine gender in their corpus work. --John Flowerdew, Professor, Department of English, City University of Hong Kong
If you want to know what corpus linguistics can offer to sociolinguists interested in the relationship between language and gender, this book is the answer. I found it hard to put down. Written in a wonderfully accessible style, it provides detailed examples of the challenging questions, messy data, and satisfying, though often approximate, answers that corpus linguistics can provide. It confronts researchers with the real nitty-gritty of the challenges and rewards of each step of a corpus linguistics project. Researchers and students will both find it invaluable. --Janet Holmes, Professor of Linguistics, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand
