Abstract:This book looks at gender in relation to language in the Cameroonian context. Contributors examine the interconnections between gender and language through social relationships and interactions. This is a multidisciplinary approach informed by perspectives from anthropology, sociology and applied linguistics. The book hinges on gender, discourse and social change in historical perspective. The book is divided in four sections. Section A, Theorising gender and language in Cameroon, has contributions by Lilian Lem Atanga and Jane Sutherland. Section B, Gender and literacy, has chapters by Jean Romain Kouesso and Emmanuel Nforbi. Section C, Representing gender in context, examines gender and language use in Cameroonian society in different contexts, and holds contributions on English pedagogic materials, by Paul Mbangwana and Alice Tangang, political documents and women in politics, by Caroline Ngamchara, brewery advertisements, by Canisia Ndeloa, Lilian Lem Atanga and Tsofack Jean Benoit, representation of gender in newspapers, by Jiogo Ngaufack Caroline Stephanie, and gender in discourses on marriage and agriculture, by Raul Kassea. Section D, Gender in other contexts, contains contributions on advertising in Finland, by Anna-Maija Pirttilä-Backman and B. Raul Kassea, and religious discourse in Nigeria, by Akin Odebunmi.
