1 - 3 days availability
This book reveals how 'double-voicing' is an inherent and routine part of spoken interactions within institutional contexts. Baxter's research shows that women use double-voicing more than men as a means of gaining acceptance and approval in the workplace. Double-voicing thus involves an interplay between power, gender and linguistic expertise.
Judith Baxter is Professor of Applied Linguistics at Aston University, UK. She has written and edited many publications on the themes of language and gender, language and education, and the language of leadership. The research represented in this book derives from a major UK Research Council grant on gender and the language of leadership, as well as a case study of Judith's work featured in the BBC2 TV series Hilary Devey's Women at the Top.
