Summary Deborah Tannen revolutionized our understanding of gender and communication. Now, for the first time on video, Tannen takes your students on an intellectual journey to the core of how men and women use language, and why communication between the sexes so often goes awry. Debunking the misconception that communication would be transparent if we simply "said what we meant," Tannen counters by suggesting that we do say what we mean--only we say it in our own "conversational style". On a canvas of disciplines from linguistics and psychology, to anthropology and communication, Tannen paints a fascinating picture of the conversational "signals," "devices," and "rituals" that structure our every interaction. Against a backdrop of ethnic, gender, and other cultural factors, Tannen demonstrates how conversational signals send "metamessages" that "frame" the meaning of what we say. And why, when conversational styles differ, the frame we intend may not be the one perceived. Utterly fascinating. -- San Francisco Chronicle.
