An Overview on Gender Problem in Modern English
Tuyakaeva, Daria
Bulgarian Comparative Education Society, Paper presented at the International Distance Partner Conference (1st, Plovdiv, Bulgaria, May 14-17, 2013)
The object of the present linguistic study is the linguistic phenomenon of gender as a grammatical category of the English noun. We witness an upsurge of interest to the problem nowadays in the context of the prescription of gender-fair English. Gender-fair (neutral) English language has gained support from major text-book publishers and academic groups. Our assumption is gender in Modern English is a relatively straightforward category to discuss as has already been indicated, modern scholars writing in Modern English are highly influenced by traditional accounts on gender.
