Phenomenology in and of Deborah Tannen's genderlectics

Lester Embree

pp. 153-171

Gendered conversation styles and their impacts are discussed by the sociolinguist Deborah Tannen in three books for non-specialized audiences.1 Her general approach is shown in the first book with respect to various cultural differences, while the other two books focus on gendered conversational styles, i.e., "genderlects" (YJ 297), specifically. The second book has been a Book of the Month Club and also a Macmillan Book Club selection and nearly four years on The New York Times Bestseller List. It thus now probably affects as well as reflects gendered interaction in the United States.
