The Effect of Cinderella Syndrome—Gender Stratification of Speech in Women's Literature

A. Meyerovich
Abstract—The study analyzes the cases of violation of socially stereotyped and linguistically accepted norms of gender-stratified verbal behavior; naturally, these special cases are marked, and the aim of the study is to decipher the meaning of this markedness. In the study the phenomenon of a marked new verbal gender model of the world that becomes womanly transformed is called Cinderella syndrome. Women’s literature was chosen as the material for the analysis of female features in men’s speech as it presents many cases of the phenomenon and at the same time happens itself to be a reason for it.

Index Terms—Inverted verbal gender roles, women’s literature, speech/description contradiction, factor of addressee.
