The Battle of Words between Gender Groups: A Language-Based Approach to Intergroup Processes.
Fiedler, Klaus; And Others
Human Communication Research, v19 n3 p409-41 Mar 1993
Presents a language approach to outgroup homogeneity and discrimination between gender groups. Finds outgroup discrimination was confined to female respondents; outgroup discrimination resulted more from repetition of biased statements than from differential abstraction; and discrimination was strongest for topics for which the most distinctive and reliable language profiles were available.
