Deborah Tannen draws on her interviews with eighty women, ranging in age from 9 to 97, and on years of research examining how ways of talking affect relationships, to explore the role of talk among friends, with particular focus on women's friendships, how they compare to men's, and the consequences of such differences. Tannen is on the faculty of Georgetown University's Department of Linguistics (#32998)
