mention how Odysseus is a polytropos hero which means he uses skill and cunning rather than bia which is strength and force. Odysseus also chooses homecoming over glory and ends up getting glory from his homecoming.”’
Several studies have been conducted by sociolinguists to prove that these distinctions in a men’s speech and women’s speech do exist and are not just for say. In addition, differences not only exist in matters of speech but also in terms of interaction. This gendered language is the reason that not only reflects these social differences between men and women but it also creates and maintains them (Talbot, 1998). However, what is worth remembering is that it is not always the same; not all women have a stereotypical style as outlined by the linguists and not all men have the exact identical way described by linguists. You must have occasionally heard someone say ‘he’s too feminine’ or ‘she’s totally boyish’. This does indicate that exceptions, as in everything else, exist in gendered language too. All women and men cannot be placed in the category set out by linguists. Nonetheless, a general framework that has been created by linguists clearly defines that differences amongst language used by men and women are present. There are vocal differences, differences in forms, in politeness, in compliments and what is interesting is that these differences exist since childhood. Boy talk vs. girl talk Even as young girls and boys, there is a great amount of difference in the way each one speaks, interacts and responds. There is a difference in interests as well. While girls are busy dressing up Barbie dolls or playing teacher-teacher, boys are fighting for dominance in wrestling games or killing each other in robotics. Linguists have pointed out that girls, since school age, have a more interactive style with “socializing in small groups, more often in co-operative activities, establishing reciprocal relationships and exchanging roles” (Yule, 2006, p. 224). Boys, on the other hand, tend to exclude girls from their activities and make fun of those who do include them. Comparatively, they tend to “socialize in much larger groups, often in competitive activities, establishing and maintaining hierarchical relationships” (Yule, 2006, p. 224).
