Abstract or Description

Sexualities are perceived, constructed and represented in different ways in various languages and cultures. This collection addresses how people use various linguistic features to construct their sexual identities and relationships and how membership of specific social groups, based on sexual and lifestyle choices, may be signalled through language. The new research presented in the chapters focuses on cross-cultural contexts and is situated within a discussion of current trends and theories in relation to language and sexuality.
