Verbal Hygiene for Women: Linguistics Misapplied?
Cameron, Deborah
Applied Linguistics, v15 n4 p382-98 Dec 1994
Examines communication training aimed at women, such as assertiveness training, as an example of linguistics applied to real-world problems and argues that both the problem and the proposed solution are sociolinguistically and politically misconstrued. Such training often makes overgeneralizations regarding women's communication skills and assumes that "masculine" models of communication are ideal. (29 references) (MDM)
