Code Switching and Sexual Orientation: A Test of Bernstein's Sociolinguistic Theory
Lumby, Malcolm E.
Journal of Homosexuality, 1, 4, 383-397, Sum 76

Subjects told a story based on homoerotic photographs where knowledge of sexual orientation was varied. Results suggest that homosexual homophyly encouraged elaboration. (Author)
