Summary:
Lynn T. Lovdal explores sexism in both the syntax and semantics of language and shows how it is often unintentional or even unrecognized. She explores four key areas: "female" words that are dependent on a "male" version, words that are more positive for men than for women, words for women that carry negative sexual connotations, and "neutral" words that become inferior when applied to women.
