This lecture series constitutes a college-level course on gender and language, presented in non-technical language and illustrated by real-life examples.   Lectures describe the patterns that tend to distinguish how men and women use language in their everyday lives, and the consequences of these differences (as well as similarities) for conversations and relationships between women and men.  The goal of this series, in addition to illuminating the patterns of women's and men's uses of language, is to enhance understanding of how language works in everyday life.
