Just Words – The US and THEM Thing
Every day we work and play with people who are not Us. This handbook offers ways to interact with Them without judgment, derision, or conflict. Used by journalists, students, business executives, writers, court and government workers, and teachers, Just Words aims to eliminate from language the isms that pull people apart. Just Words includes:
- ways to avoid the sexism, racism, classism, ageism, and nationalism in language
- reasons to pay attention to ism language
- how to recognize and eliminate discriminatory language habits
- PLUS a glossary of more than 1,000 alternative terms.
Written with wit and style by Val Dumond, this book is becoming the standard reference on inclusive language. Read the Introduction of Just Words: The Us and Them Thing
