    Patterns of Communication in Women and Men

    Patterns of Communication in Women and Men

    Order Description

    Are Different Patterns of
    Communication in Women
    and Men Innately Determined?
    YES: Louann Brizendine, from Th e Female Brain (Morgan Road
    Books, 2006).
    Brenda ]. Allen, from Difference Matters: Communicating
    Social Identity (Waveland Press, 2004). Long Grove: IL.

    As another example, it turns out that no study has actually counted the
    number of words used by women and men in natural conversations, that is,
    not until July 2007. In contradiction of Brizdendine’s claim that women utter
    200,000 words to men’s 7,000 per day, Matthias Mehl and his colleagues
    found over of period of 1 7 working hours women average 1 6,2 1 4 words and
    men averaged 1 5,669, a highly statistically nonsignificant finding (Science,
    val. 31).
    Currently there i s less interest in examining sex differences i n language
    and more emphasis on how people use language in everyday life to create
    and maintain social realities. Mary Crawford points out that feminists have
    worked to create a more gender-balanced language through the coining of
    new words and putting old words to new uses. She notes that language is
    power.
