Negotiation of Speech Style in Japanese Women's Language: Vantage Theory as Cognitive Sociolinguistics.
Adachi, Nobuko
Language Sciences, v24 n5-6 p575-90 Sep-Nov 2002
Contrasts differences in language use across the Japanese workplace, including women's speech. Examines what is referred to as "manifestations of power" among Japanese working women. Explores "resistance to subordination" among female university students who have not yet entered professional or domestic life. Comparison of the two groups demonstrates how women negotiate to maximize power in a world dominated by men. (Author/VWL)
