about

This book explores the construction of identities within a lesbian group, outlining interactive tactics used in the production of mutually-negotiated norms of authenticity. Using ethnography and discourse analysis, a range of group-specific personae are revealed to be continually reworked and reproduced within the women's interaction.
LUCY JONES is Lecturer in Linguistics at the University of Hull, UK, and was previously Lecturer in English Language at Edge Hill University, UK. Her research interests include Sociocultural Linguistics, Discourse Analysis, Ethnography, Language and Gender, and Language and Sexual Identity.
