Robin Tolmach Lakoff (/ˈleɪkɒf/; born November 27, 1942) is a professor of linguistics at the University of California, Berkeley. Lakoff was born in 1942 in Brooklyn, New York. at Radcliffe College, a . from Indiana University, and a P. from Harvard University. She was married to linguist George Lakoff

The 1975 publication of Robin Tolmach Lakoff's Language and Woman's Place, is widely recognized as having inaugurated feminist research on the relationship between language and gender, touching off a remarkable response among language scholars, feminists, and general readers. For the past thirty years, scholars of language and gender have been debating and developing Lakoff's initial observations.Arguing that language is fundamental to gender inequality, Lakoff pointed to two areas in which inequalities can be found: Language used about women, such as the asymmetries between seemingly parallel terms like master and mistress, and language used by women, which places women in a double bind between being appropriately feminine and being fully human. Lakoff's central argument that "women's language" expresses powerlessness triggered a controversy that continues to this day.The revised and expanded edition presents the full text of the original first edition, along with an introduction and annotations by Lakoff in which she reflects on the text a quarter century later and expands on some of the most widely discussed issues it raises. The volume also brings together commentaries from twenty-six leading scholars of language, gender, and sexuality, within linguistics, anthropology, modern languages, education, information sciences, and other disciplines. The commentaries discuss the book's contribution to feminist research on language and explore its ongoing relevance for scholarship in the field.This new edition of Language and Woman's Place not only makes available once again the pioneering text of feminist linguistics; just as important, it places the text in the context of contemporary feminist and gender theory for a new generation of readers.
Love it!!!

Early Waffle
This book was purchased for one of my daughter's college classes.

This is absolutely vital to any student of linguistics or women's studies. The original version changed the course of linguistic study. This expanded edition is full of excellent commentaries. Perfect!

I struggled through this with as an open mind as possible. The links were there but they were directed at a preconceived narrative. It was too sad that she places barriers without consideration of any merit.

A liberal guide to nothing.

For years I have suffered from Insomnia. I have tried all kinds of homeopathic remedies, acupuncture, herbal teas, unpronounceable Chinese herbs, crystals, crystal meth, and still nothing worked.

Then one of those really insufferable liberal women at work, you know the kind, always complaining that some man makes more than she does, even though he does twice the work and is not constantly offended by everything, left this book behind at the break room. It just so happened that I had gone out the night before, to the all you can eat burrito and beer joint downtown. The gurgling and rumbling from my colon told me that launch time was T minus 10. I saw the sports section of the paper all the way across the room, did a quick mental calculation, nothing you ladies would understand, it was more of the instinctual way Tom Brady hooks up with Julian Edelman for a 60 yd bomb, and went with my secondary route.

Thinking quickly, I grabbed the only reading material in between me and the hopper, Robin's book. Banging the door shut with my back foot, I slapped the lock on the door and got a hermetic seal just when the launch sequence hit zero. I had to grab onto the bowl with both hands as my sphincter made a perfect poo nozzle for the liquid and gaseous mixture and threatened to lift me to the ceiling. After a few moments, the torrent slowed to a manageable splatter.

It was then that I opened the book for the first time. The somnolent power of the words within instantly brought my heartbeat down to cryogenic sleep levels and my eyes felt like they had leaden blocks attached to them. The last thing I remember reading was something about the role of gender-based power iniquity in sociolinguistic processes.

When I awoke it was to a ruined landscape devoid of human life. From what I have begun to piecemeal together, the Emergency Medical Technicians who responded to the call of me being unresponsive in the bathroom made the fatal mistake of opening up the book. As each person in turn became overcome, the circle of contagion spread until it encircled the globe in a frenzy of torpor. We didn't go out with a bang, but with a snore.

I only hope that some space faring race, investigating a planet that used to house intelligent life, does not have a universal language translator, kind of like the Star Trek (not the Star Trek with the annoying red head who talked like Katherine Hepburn) one.

If they do, it is possible that this cursed tome could erase all advanced life throughout the universe.
