Abstract

Does gender affect language use? Well, during all these years there have been a number of studies on language and gender, conducted by both men and women. Conclusions of some of these studies are somewhat similar, but other studies claim their contraversional findings. There are a number of studies, which could not escape the inherited mentality of masculine and feminism. Our study is an exchange of past and present linguistic data and research. Legends on language and gender, cultural stereotypes, the latest linguistic theories on language based on gender, questionnaire and two case studies are the main elements of our research. We try to answer to questions: do male and female use language for the same or different purpose? At what extend do the social and cultural contexts affect thinking and as a consequence the language itself?
