Gender Stereotypes in Film Language: A Corpus-Assisted Analysis

Lucia Busso, Gianmarco Vignozzi

Research output: Contribution to journalConference article

Abstract

The present study concentrates
on the representation and the reception of
gender stereotypes. The analysis was first
carried out on an ad hoc corpus of cult romantic comedies and dramedies of AngloAmerican pop contemporary culture and
secondly with a perception test. Both the
corpus-driven analysis and the test results
provide useful insights into the representation, recognition and entrenchment of
gender stereotypes in language and in
western culture. The preliminary findings
generally confirm and validate the scientific literature, although showing some notable new elements.
