Lesikin, Joan
College ESL, v8 n1 p83-97 Jun 1998
Reviews methods for analyzing gender bias in English-as-a- Second-Language textbooks and suggests a methodology that deals with (1) continuous discourse (prose) and context-reduced language (sentence-level items); and (2) interpreting language content (meaning) and counting language items (number of occurrences) based on the work of M.A.K. Halliday. (Author/JL)
