Essay # 2 – Language/Verbal Communication & Gender
Use some of the text constructs of
(or other constructs from this course section)
to analyze men’s, women’s and/or LGBTQ communication – what are the
expectations and messages about gender and/or sex roles? You may apply the constructs to one person’s verbal
behavior, or contrast the behaviors of two people. Give enough detail regarding the situation(s) so that your application
of constructs to “real” language use makes sense to someone who wasn’t there! You may compare & contrast gendered
language between cultures if you have observed or lived it.
