Abstract :

Gender has been an interesting variable for examining a society’s linguistic behaviour. In the English language, the gender-system can be detected from the lexical items, for instance in the use of address forms. This study focuses on the inner circle countries: United States, Canada, Great Britain, Australia and New Zealand. This study uses corpus linguistics approach and GloWbE (Global Web Based English) as the corpus data to reveal the most gender-bias country within these five native English speaking countries. By looking at the results of the difference of total number of occurrences per million words of male and female forms of addresses, we can infer that the United States tends to be the most gender bias country, and Australia tends to be the least gender bias country.
