Dominant Language in Two Television Shows

Abstract [en]
The aim of this report is to study whether there are differences between how men and women use linguistic strategies in conversation and interviews on two American television shows and to relate any differences to previous studies concerning gender, power, dominance and language use in conversations. Several episodes from two American television shows are examined in the study. The two television shows are the Oprah Show and the Dr Phil Show. Analysis of an all-female conversation, an all-male conversation and mixed gender conversations are made. The results indicate that some aspects of the strategies are possibly gender linked. This is especially so with minimal responses. However, the data tends to suggest that dominance in conversation and interviwes is not gender based.
