Redefining the Hypernym Mensch:in in German: Gender, Sexuality, and Personhood examines how the verbalization of ‘human’ in gender normative terms results in implicit exclusion. Situated in the tension between traditional rules and progressive language use, this book criticizes the heteronormativity of masculine hypernyms and argues for the adoption of gender-inclusive linguistic practices.
