Metaphorically Speaking: Gender and Person.
Fiksdal, Susan
Language Sciences, v21 n3 p345-54 Jul 1999
Investigated metaphors used by college students to describe their conversation during seminars, examining the effect of gender and person. Data from videotaped seminar discussions and surveys of seminar participants indicated that there was a particular shaping of the seminar experience that could be related to socialized, gendered identities. The shaping affected the ways that speakers conceptualized the discourse. (SM)
