         Subject: gender differences in the use of ing-forms

Dear Humanist colleagues, we study the differences in the use of the
ing-forms (Gerund, Participle 1 and Verbal Noun) in the texts of the male
and female writers. We also try to find out if there is any difference in
the texts of the American and British writers in this respect. The
differences are studied with the help of "chi-square" criterion. It is also
interesting if there is any time difference. I mean writers of the 18th,
19th, or 20th centuries. I could never find any publications in this
respect. May be, you could advice me any? Looking forward to hearing from
you soon to <mailto:yutamb_at_hotmail.com>yutamb_at_hotmail.com Yours sincerely
Yuri Tambovtsev
