Gender Differences across Correlated Corpora: Preliminary Results

Roberta E. Sabin, Kerri A. Goodwin, Jade Goldstein-Stewart, Joseph A. Periera

Does genre affect the way we communicate? We are especially interested in how computer mediation affects the style and content of communication. In an effort to find features related to choice of genre, we have created correlated corpora of writing and speech samples from a single population of subjects. All written and spoken text was opinion-related with topics prescribed and moderated. This paper reports some preliminary results of analysis of a portion of this corpus with an emphasis on linguistic features that may be gender-related.

Subjects: 13. Natural Language Processing; 12. Machine Learning and Discovery
