Ⅱ. Gender differences in English
1. Differences in Referring Expressions for Men and Women
2. Differences in the Way Men and Women Interact
3. The reason why these differences occur
Our basic concern has three parts: first to see differences in English words referring to women and men and to find out the underlying concepts that the society generally has toward women and men, second to see the differences in the ways man and woman use their language and to find out the distinctive communicative styles of both sexes, and finally to seek for the reason why such differences and distinctions have arisen. Further, from our research, we intend to find some implications for our daily use of language and to make some suggestions for more desirable and effective communications between men and women.
