On-Line Smiles: Does Gender Make a Difference in the Use of Graphic Accents?
Witmer, Diane; Katzman, Sandra
Journal of Computer-Mediated Communication, v2 n4 Mar 1997
Examines whether it is possible to determine the gender of a message sender from cues in the message. Finds partial support for the hypothesis that women use more graphic accents than men do in their computer-mediated communication. Finds also that women tend to challenge and "flame" more than men. Discusses implications and poses questions for additional research. (RS)
