Equal Opportunities and the Use of Language: A Critique of the New Orthodoxy.
Winch, Christopher; Sharp, Keith
Studies in Higher Education, v19 n2 p163-75 1994
Debate over the role of sexist language in promoting or denying equal job opportunities is examined, especially in institutions of higher education. It is concluded that the view that use of certain words leads to unfair discrimination is based on untenable theories of meaning, making policies for regulation of language indefensible. (Author/MSE)
