I>Language, Sexualities and Desires presents new research on the use of language as evidence for the construction of sexual identities. The contributors offer real-life data originating from a number of cultures, and a polysexual focus. They show how linguistic research in the areas of desire, sexual identities and love can benefit from a cross-cultural approach. Specific issues that are explored include:" How people use various linguistic features to construct their sexual identities and relationships, and how this varies from culture to culture" How people express love and desire through a range of linguistic features" What people's linguistic behaviour reveals about conceptualisations of love and sexuality within different cultures" How membership of specific social groups, based on sexual and lifestyle choices, may be signalled through language" How social and political discourses of love and sexuality may be identified and constructed through language in situated cultures and contexts
