1 guide to Lakoff Ben Franks’

2 guide to Lakoff Professor Robin Lakoff, born 1942, is known for her 1973 research on gender sociolinguistics. She later gained international acclaim by publishing her findings which defined “ 10 ways” women differ in speech from men in a book entitled, Language & Woman's Place

3 Lakoff: Findings Found that there were ten notable ways where the speech of a woman differs from that of a man.

4 Lakoff: Findings Hedges – Phrases such as “sort of”, “kind of”, “seems like”.

5 Lakoff: Findings Use of Empty Adjectives – divine, adorable, gorgeous, etc.

6 Lakoff: Findings (Super-)Polite forms – “Would you mind?”, “if its not too much to ask”, “is it okay if”

7 Lakoff: Findings Apologise more – Women have a tendency to apologise more often, i.e. “Sorry, but I think that”

8 Lakoff: Findings Speak Less Frequently – In mixed-sex conversation, females will likely speak less than males.

9 Lakoff: Findings Avoid Coarse Language or expletives – Women less likely to swear or use “rude” language.

10 Lakoff: Findings Tag Questions – "You don't mind eating this, do you ?” It is made up of an AUXILIARY verb and a PRONOUN.

11 Lakoff: Findings Indirect Requests – “Aww, I am really thirsty” – actually a request for a drink.

12 Lakoff: Findings Hypercorrection – Women were found to hypercorrect (overly- correct) their grammar and use a high prestige of pronunciation, with very clear articulation.

13 Lakoff: Findings “Speak in Italics” – Women placed emphasis on certain words, particularly modifiers, such as very, quite and so.
