Abstracts

Feminism movements have crushed traditional paternalism framework. On one hand, female speakers are no longer appendages of male speakers and have gained equal status in family life, education, economy, politics, etc.; on the other hand, male speakers have learned how to respect female speakers more and more. Under the influence of those two social facts, the trend of gender language convergence in contemporary Chinese society (CCS) is occurring. However, most of the ongoing researches on gender language focus more on the differences of the language used by people of different genders, or the troubles that those differences may bring about during cross-gender communications. Thus, the author believes related researches on gender language convergence should be carried out.
