Genderlect Styles (Gender and Communication)

This theory was first introduced by Deboral Tanent. Tanent describe that lack of understanding (misunderstanding) between men and women with respect to the fact that the focus of discussion is the connectivity of women, while men in the service of status and independence.

Styles Genderlect conversation talking about the style, not about what is said but how to express it. Tanent believe that there is a gap between men and women, because each is in the position of cross-cultural (cross cultural), it is necessary to anticipate with respect to that gap. Failure to observe differences in conversation style which can carry a big problem.
The differences are located at:
a. Feminist versus masculine tendencies, this should be seen as two different dialects: between the superior and inverior in the talks. Feminist community - to build a relationship; showed responsive. Community masculine - to complete the task; declare themselves; gain power.
b. Women keen on connections versus male desire for status. Closely related to the proximity connection, the status is closely linked to power (power).
c. Rapport talk vs report talk. Linguistic cultural differences play a role in structuring verbal contact between men and women. Rapport-talk is a term used to assess the chatter of women who tend to be impressed by the sympathetic. Report talk is the term used chat male judge who tends to what is, essentially up.

With regard to these values, Tanent find categorized findings as follows:
a) Public versus private speaking speaking, in this category found that women are more talkative in private conversation. While men more involved public conversation, men use conversation as a statement of the command function; convey information; requesting approval.
b) Telling story, the stories describe the expectations, needs, and values the teller. In these categories of men more than women-especially talked about the joke. The story joke is a way negotiated masculine status.
c) Listening, women tend to maintain the view, often NOD, humming as she listened and expressed markers togetherness. Men in terms of listening to try to blur the impression that-as an effort to maintain the status.
d) Asking questions, when they want to talk to interrupt the speaker, women's prior express consent. Tanent call it a cooperative-a sign of sympathetic rapport rather than competitive. In men, regarded by Tanent interruptions as power-the power to control the conversation. In other words, the questions used by women to strengthen the relationship, as well as to smooth out disagreements with the speaker, while men use the opportunity to ask an attempt to make the speakers so weak.
e) Conflict, women viewed the conflict as a threat and should be avoided. Men usually start a conflict but less likely to maintain it.
