Descripción

Women in the History of Linguistics [Mujeres en la historia de la lingüística] es una investigación pionera sobre la contribución de las mujeres a la descripción, análisis y codificación de idiomas en una amplia gama de diferentes tradiciones lingüísticas y culturales. En concreto, el volumen va de Europa a África, Australia, Asia y América del Norte, ofreciendo un enfoque sistemático y comparativo de un tema que aún no ha recibido la atención académica que merece. Teniendo en cuenta las oportunidades educativas –a menudo limitadas– de las mujeres en el pasado, su impacto se examina no solo en contextos tradicionales e institucionales, sino también en ámbitos más privados.

 

Los capítulos exploran una gran variedad de esferas de actividad, incluida la producción de gramáticas, diccionarios, estudios filológicos, ediciones críticas, notas y reflexiones sobre la naturaleza del lenguaje y los sistemas de escritura, así como la contribución de las mujeres a la documentación y mantenimiento de las lenguas indígenas, métodos de enseñanza y adquisición de idiomas, debates sobre idiomas y uso y políticas de la lengua. Se exploran las actitudes hacia el lenguaje de las mujeres, tanto positivas como negativas, que regularmente dan forma a la descripción y el análisis lingüístico, junto con textos metalingüísticos dirigidos específicamente a ellas como lectoras. Women in the history of Linguistics está dirigido a todos los académicos y estudiantes interesados ​​en la historia de la lingüística, los estudios de la mujer, la historia social y cultural y la intersección entre lenguaje y género.

Women in the History of Linguistics is a ground-breaking investigation into women's contribution to the description, analysis, and codification of languages across a wide range of different linguistic and cultural traditions. Notably, the volume looks beyond Europe to Africa, Australia, Asia, and North America, offering a systematic and comparative approach to a subject that has not yet received the scholarly attention it deserves. In view of women's often limited educational opportunities in the past, their impact is examined not only within traditional and institutional contexts, but also in more domestic and less public realms. The chapters explore a variety of spheres of activity, including the production of grammars, dictionaries, philological studies, critical editions, and notes and reflections on the nature of language and writing systems, as well as women's contribution to the documentation and maintenance of indigenous languages, language teaching and acquisition methods, language debates, and language use and policy. Attitudes towards women's language-both positive and negative-that regularly shape linguistic description and analysis are explored, alongside metalinguistic texts specifically addressed to them as readers. Women in the History of Linguistics is intended for all scholars and students interested in the history of linguistics, women's studies, social and cultural history, and the intersection between language and gender.

  • Brings together ground-breaking work on the role of women in the history of linguistics.
  • Explores the contributions of women in a wide range of spheres, from the production of dictionaries and grammars to language teaching methods and language policy.
  • Looks beyond the European context, examining such diverse topics as women's roles in the codification of Arabic, and the regulation and exploitation of women's speech in Japan.
