Empirical Support for the Gender-as-Culture Hypothesis: An Intercultural Analysis of Male/Female Language Differences.
Mulac, Anthony; Bradac, James J.; Gibbons, Pamela
Human Communication Research, v27 n1 p121-52 Jan 2001
Presents three studies that provide a test of gender-as-culture, or "two cultures," hypothesis proposed by Maltz and Borker (1982) to explain male/female differences in language use. Finds that gender preferences for language use among undergraduate students function in ways that are consistent with stylistic preferences that distinguish national cultures. (SC)
