Language Style and Gender Stereotypes in Person Perception.
Quina, Kathryn; And Others
Psychology of Women Quarterly, v11 n1 p111-21 Mar 1987
Described sentence pairs representing Lakoff's "women's language" and corresponding "masculine" styles to examine gender stereotyping as a function of linguistic pattern usage. College students evaluated hypothetical male, female, or sex-unknown speakers on 31 bipolar adjective scales. Participants rated the nonfeminine linguistic style significantly higher in competence, but lower in social warmth, than the feminine style. (Author/KS)
