Speech styles used by young female and young male teachers in teaching English to their olde students

The writer conducted a study of sociolinguistics which focused on female
and male speech style. In this study, the writer discussed about the speech styles
used by a young female and a young male teacher in teaching English to their
older students, the tendencies of using the features of each speech styles, and also
the use of opposite gendered speech styles. In conducting this study, the writer
applied the theory of gendered speech styles which were presented by Baxter
(2010). The findings showed that the young female teacher showed herself as
female speech styles user and applied all the features of female speech styles such
as ‘co-operative’ as the most dominant feature followed by ‘process-oriented’,
‘compliant’, ‘personal’, and the least is ‘polite’ and the young female teacher also
applied the opposite gendered speech styles but only five features of male speech
styles such as ‘matter of fact’ as the dominant feature followed by ‘aggressive’,
‘goal-directed’, ‘assertive’, and the least is ‘ego-enhancing’ and not applied ‘use
of humour’ at all. Also, the findings showed that the young male teachers showed
himself as male speech styles user but only applied five features of male speech
styles those are ‘matter of fact’ as the dominant feature followed by ‘assertive’,
‘ego-enhancing’, ‘aggressive’, and the least is ‘goal-directed’ but not applied ‘use
of humour’ at all and the young male teacher also applied the opposite gendered
speech style and he applied all features of female speech styles those are ‘cooperative’
as the most dominant feature followed by ‘compliant’, ‘polite’,
‘process-oriented’, ‘personal’ and the least is ‘personal’. From the data, the writer
found that the young female and male teachers used ‘co-operative’ features of
female speech styles as the dominant features in teaching their older students but
they never used ‘use of humour’ features of male speech styles when they taught
their older students.
