Wang Shu’e, Chen Yiting
Many linguists are convinced that gender differences in language are inevitable. However, with the change of social status of men and women, the stereotype of typical male language and female language is disputable in certain sense and to some extent. In the framework of stylistic analysis and conversational analysis, this thesis analyzes the change of gender differences in language over time. Examples are collected from Big Brother, a social experiment reality show. It is found that, in the process of language communication, the difference in gender language is gradually fading.
