Write The First Customer Review

An interdisciplinary study of women and language in England in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, this book focuses on the connections that contemporaries made between speech and reading, studies the period's discourses on "woman's language" and their contrasts to the linguistic practices of individual women, and argues for the importance of oral performance of literature for women's development.
