- Background (300 words)
• Identify an area of accounting research that is both important and of interest to you. Explain why it is of interest to you.
- Motivation and justification (300 words)
• Present a brief argument to justify others’ need for, and the potential usefulness of, research in this area. Whilst you could base this argument on personal experience or opinion, ensure that you also include reasoning based on knowledge gained in your studies and any gaps you have identified in the literature (IE: include references).
- Research Aim (200 words)
• Now narrow the scope of your study to a more specific context. Briefly describe a specific accounting research problem you would like to explore.
• Identify an over-arching research question derived from your problem statement to be answered.
• Identify specific research questions that would assist your exploration of the research problem and the over-arching research question. Only one question is necessary, but sometimes we must ask a couple of preliminary questions before we have all the information we need to ask the main question (It must be possible to answer these questions).
• Identify a title for your research.
Abstract: Are men really more casual and women more sophisticated while speaking? Despite both genders being part of the same human species, they do have a salient difference in the manner they interact, speak, react and even the topics they choose to talk about. While men are more at ease in their social contexts, women appear to be conscious about their status and thus tend to use higher standard language in terms of talking. In addition, both men and women have different purposes when talking: for men it has more to do about imparting information and demonstrating expertise compared to women who aim to maintain and develop relationships. However, like in a lot of other things, exceptions are a part of this issue too; some men are just ‘too feminine’ and some women are just ‘too boyish’. Ever noticed how differently girls and boys talk? What words they use? What topics do they speak on? If you haven’t yet; next time make sure to do so because linguists have “claimed to establish a rather intriguing difference between the language used by women and men” (Talbot, 1998, p. 20). Language and gender is a vast topic that attracts a lot of discussion from linguists around the world who aim to extract the variations and distinctions between a male’s language and a female’s. Up until today several such distinctions have been discovered, studied and noted. These differences are essential in characterizing the ‘masculine style’ of talking and the ‘feminine style’. The paramount objective of this paper will be to look deep into these specific differences and also to find possible reasons as to why they exist. The ‘he’ dominance Historically, English was considered as a sexist language with gender bias in its use (Yule, 2006; Jule, 2008). An example of this gender bias is the use of “pronouns, particularly the generic use of ‘he’ or ‘him’ or ‘his’ to refer to something relating to both men and women” (Jule, 2008, p. 13). For instance, the tendency to say “each student is required to buy his own dictionary” indicates the sexism in the use of ‘his’ (Yule, 2006, p. 225). Nevertheless, now it is becoming much less common and there is now strong use of the forms ‘she/he’ and ‘his/her’ so that both genders can be includ>GET ANSWER
