Language and Power
Lang & Power – PowerPoint – Introductory summary of the types of power, with examples of situations where power is exercised for discussion (with thanks to the kind person on the EnglishLanguage List who posted the document on which this is based).
http://www.universalteacher.org.uk/lang/power.htm as is so often the case, Andrew Moore put it better than I could. Read his summary of the topic here. If you like paper notes to revise from, this would be a good set to add to your collection.
Language and gender
Paper on politeness and gender by Sara Mills
Gender & Conversational Behaviour – Powerpoint summary of ideas drawn from key research (but bear in mind some of these findings are now called in to question or may have been superceded by social changes).
Gender difference theory – PowerPoint presentation on Deborah Tannen’s work on gender difference
Theories of Gender and Spoken English – A detailed summary of some of the most famous theorists’ views. Caution: don’t get bogged down in referring to the names of theorists. It is the ideas, and how YOU apply them in relation to the data on the exam paper that counts.
