Language in a Sexist Society.
Saporta, Sol
No attempt is made here to construct a theory about language and sexism, but examples of English usage are provided as data which would have to be accounted for by any general statements regarding the nature and function of sexist language in our society. The examples are taken from the English lexicon and syntactic structure, with emphasis on assymetrical constructions, metaphorical terms, euphemisms, and epithets. (PMP)
