Title: He Said, She Said: Gender, Language, & Communication.
Written By: Deborah Tannen
URL: http://www.georgetown.edu/tannen
Description:

Into The Classroom Media. A videotape of a presentation to a university audience in which Deborah Tannen explains and illustrates her linguistic approach to understanding conversations between women and men. Including video clips of children at play and talking to their best friends, Tannen shows that ways of speaking that tend to characterize and sometimes distinguish women and men can be traced to conversational styles learned as children growing up. Topics include:


- Why many men don't like to stop and ask for directions
- When do women tend to be more indirect than men-and when do men tend to be more indirect than women?
- Who talks more, women or men?
- Why are women so often told, "Don't apologize; it's not your fault"?
- Why do so many women complain, "He doesn't talk to me and he doesn't listen," whereas many men complain "She nags"?
- What conversational rituals common among women are taken too literally by men, and what conversational rituals common among men are taken too literally by women?
