Tell Me How You Say You Talk and You Will Tell Me Who You Are. Some More Linguistic Remarks on Performativity of Gender

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: linguistics and gender, linguistic behavior and gender, linguistics and performativity of gender.

The designation of the person related to his supposed performative value concerning gender is given by a semantic system with its specific instructions about plot, characters and even context. With regard to this preliminary consideration, taking into account the theoretical framework of gender studies, we have tried to debate these types of “narrationµ from the linguistic point of view. In this sense, our work aims to propose some considerations on linguistics applied on crucial social issues.
