I am not a man

by

I was playing on Gender Analyzer and discovered that I am a man.

I’m actually not (although I’ve gotten emails from wingnuts telling me I can’t possibly be a woman), but I am extremely curious what the heck it is that makes me sound manly.

I’m taking a class in sociolinguistics now, and really enjoying it. This program would be an interesting thing to write a paper on (not mine though). But I think it would be fascinating to find out what’s involved? And what would such a study have looked like in ancient Greece?

Sadly, I doubt there are enough extant texts to make such a call, but wouldn’t it be interesting to know?

  2. Hah! It thinks I’m a man, too!

    I smell a stack of stereotypes, or alternatively, not enough sampling done.
    Love,
