Sexist Language and Spanish Foreign Language Textbooks
MetadataShow full item record
Linguists have always studied the relationship that exists between language, reality, and society. However, research on feminist linguistics has usually been nonexistent until the "second wave" movement in the late 1960s. This thesis will present a theoretical background on feminist linguistics, focusing on linguistic sexism in Spanish FL textbooks. Four different Spanish FL textbooks will be examined using a rubric and a textual analysis. An evaluation of the portrayal of women in those textbooks will take place. The author of the present study will interpret the results of the evaluation, thus providing conclusions useful for teachers and professors desiring to eliminate sexist attitudes from their classrooms.
