What You Need to Know About : Genderlect Theory

Genderlect theory proposes that there are separate languages based on gender. The core of this theory explains how different sets of linguistic features used by males and females develop through the gender acculturation process and how these genderlinked language features function as identity markers for women (or men) in their social contexts. Genderlect theory (and the term genderlect) first appeared in the 1970s. Its development since then—although not always tied to the term itself—has been associated with a range of scholars who study how gender ideology shapes patterns in women’s and men’s language usage. Scholars associated with the theory include Cheris Kramarae, Robin Lakoff, Marsha Houston, and Deborah Tannen.
