Description

This is a global collection relating applied linguistic research to the complexities of gender and religion.
In a search for a deeper understanding of the complex relationship of gender and language alongside religious identity, this book puts forward current studies from around the world emerging from the field of linguistics. The book connects language use to both a religious and gender identity. By pulling together the lived experiences of people in various communities, the linguistic field can reflect on how language works to unite, oppress, liberate or fracture the various participants.
