“Overall, this new edition is successful. Readers familiar with the original version will hopefully find the changes warranted and in line with the goals outlined by the authors in their introduction. It remains a highly useful text for graduate and advanced undergraduate courses in language and gender and for
anyone interested in the historical and current theoretical and methodological approaches to research on gender and language.” (Linguist, 27 August 2012)

"Coates and Pichler have gifted the field with this updated edition . . .. The volume, now encompassing a broader range of cultural contexts and theoretical issues, retains foundational texts that made the original indispensable and incorporates several more recent classics. Appropriate for novices and experts alike, this book faithfully represents the current state of language and gender scholarship while reviewing its past and pointing toward a rich future.
