Gender schematicity, gender identity salience, and gender-linked language use
Unformatted Document Text:  Gender schematicity, identity salience, and -linked language use 29 to another when communicating together via computer-mediated groups. Thus, scholars should devote their efforts to examine the effects of anonymity (and other aspects of CMC) on the salience of gender identity and the subsequent effects on gender-linked language use. Conclusion The language use of men and women is not as straight forward as men having the tendency to use some language features and women having the tendency to use others. The current study reveals a more complex picture of consequential male/female language differences rooted in the theoretical underpinnings of gender schematicity and gender identity salience. Gender schematicity (i.e., chronic gender identity accessibility) and gender identity salience are both essential factors for determining gender-linked language use (and, most likely, effects). Prototypical gender-linked language only transpires for men and women when they have a positively salient gender identity. This research offers an initial step towards a theoretical account of gender-linked language. Various expansions of the current study can be carried out, each tapping into a different aspect of gender-linked language use and effects in a variety of communicative contexts and under assorted types of gender identity salience. Based on the current theoretical arguments and research, future additions will hopefully provide a more inclusive understanding of the phenomena.

of gender identity and the subsequent effects on gender-linked language use.
Conclusion
The language use of men and women is not as straight forward as men having the tendency to
use some language features and women having the tendency to use others. The current study reveals
a more complex picture of consequential male/female language differences rooted in the theoretical
underpinnings of gender schematicity and gender identity salience. Gender schematicity (i.e., chronic
gender identity accessibility) and gender identity salience are both essential factors for determining
gender-linked language use (and, most likely, effects). Prototypical gender-linked language only
transpires for men and women when they have a positively salient gender identity. This research
offers an initial step towards a theoretical account of gender-linked language. Various expansions of
the current study can be carried out, each tapping into a different aspect of gender-linked language
use and effects in a variety of communicative contexts and under assorted types of gender identity
salience. Based on the current theoretical arguments and research, future additions will hopefully
provide a more inclusive understanding of the phenomena.
