Bringing together work on Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, North America and the Middle East, the volume explores how different ideologies of what it means to belong to a nation or culture influence how sexualities are both understood and linguistically expressed in a range of global locales. Contributions to the volume use experiments, discourse analysis, and different types of statistical tests to identify the particular aspects of language--accent, grammar, vocabulary, discourse--that are ideologically associated with sexuality in specific contexts. Combining insights from linguistics, anthropology, sociology, and cultural studies, the eleven chapters describe how individuals draw on these culturally-specific associations both when evaluating the speech of others and in their everyday presentations of self. The collection provides a wide-ranging and multi-method perspective on how language mediates individual desires and larger social structures. It demonstrates the diverse interconnections between sexuality and other dimensions of lived experience in a variety of previously under-explored national and linguistic settings"--Provided by publisher."@en ;
