We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually
best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is
then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was
instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we
would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it
is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have
taken the trouble to respond to the query.

Subject:  Gender and Age Variables and Language Normativity

In continuation of my last query on women's language and normative
forms, I would like further references to studies which have shown
other gender and age variables and their connection to the use of
normative, prescriptive, and/or non-venacular language and speech. I
am particularly interested in prosody and Spanish, but welcome
references concerning all levels of language from phonetics to
discourse as well as all languages in ''Western'' and ''Non-Western''
societies.  My own data indicate a strong preference for such forms
mostly by women, but in certain cases by males as well, and by older
and younger groups of men and women, and in other cases by
children. Once again, I will post a summary.

Thank you in advance:
