The Gender Divide in Language

Lecture no. 19 from the course: Language and Society: What Your Speech Says About You

The Gender Divide in Language

Taught by Professor Valerie Fridland | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Literature & Language Courses

How do men and women differ in how they use and hear speech? To answer this, look at contrasting linguistic features between the sexes, and compare theories that attempt to explain the differences. Consider whether it is being a woman or a man that creates the differences, or whether gender-related speech variations arise from social constructs.
