In fact, how you string together verbs, nouns, adjectives and adverbs to form a sentence may be a dead giveaway to your gender.
According to Nature News Science, women write more about people and relationships. They use more pronouns like I, you, him, her and their. For example, they might say, "HER dog is cute."
Men, on the other hand, tend to focus on words that identify or quantify nouns. Like the, a, that and one, two, or more. They're more likely to say "THAT dog is cute"
Researchers at Bar-Ilan University in Israel developed a computer program that analyzes writing style and determines the author's gender. The computer is 80 percent accurate at detecting if a nonfiction book or novel was written by a man or a woman. It does this just by scanning words and grammar. The researchers say the computer program confirms the stereotype that men talk more about things, while women focus more on relationships. Men categorize, women personalize. Men have an informational, factual style, women an involved, descriptive one.
But the idea that a computer can determine gender is creating a fuss in some academic circles.
The research was actually rejected for publication by the National Academy of Sciences. They thought it raised too many gender issues and promoted stereotypes.
