The Way Women Write

To test the traditional assumption that men and women write differently and to determine if there are distinct "masculine" and "feminine" styles, and where and how the differences are revealed. Men and women often write about different things, but further than this, there are aspects of style which do reflect differences:e.g. sentence structure, sentence length, parallelism, the frequency of -ly adverbs, adjectives, and similes. It is on that the emphasis will be placed.
