Gender Differences and Language Variation: A Theoretical Framework

Khaled B. Albesher


Many psychologists, sociologists, anthropologists, and other researchers into language and gender have shown a keener interest in the differences between men and women in the ways they communicate and interact than in the similarities between them, focusing on aspects such as style of language and speech.
