Accommodating female and sex
In this article I will ask the additional question whether the differences are related specifically to gender or, alternatively, to status and power.The first part will be devoted to an overview of scholarship in the field of male-female speech.Barbara grew up as an apparently normal girl enjoying a happy childhood.As her teenage years approached, she looked forward to experiencing the same sexual development she saw in older girls.What she did have was a pain in her left groin that eventually subsided, only to be replaced by the appearance of a mass in the left side of her labia.With growing shock, she felt her voice dropping, her facial hair growing, and her clitoris enlarging to become more and more like a penis.In the morning, Jessie tries to be as accommodating as possible, but quickly realizes that the dynamic has changed in their relationship.
The second part will discuss the two major hypotheses which have been advanced as explanations for the differential use of language by male and female speakers: the dominance and the difference approaches.

By now she had become convinced that she was really a boy and that the mysteriously shifting mass within her was in actuality a testis.
