In this collection of essays, a group of linguists and social scientists examines specific instances of language use, and centers its analysis around the speakers/writers and their contributions to message-exchange within a setting. These prominent scholars create a basis for a bold exploration of homosexual dialogue as an independently developed linguistic construction, by arguing in support of distinctively constructed lesbian and gay languages.
