Özet

The present study examines the issue of gender differences in the use of speech acts in notes written by suicidal people. The study aims at investigating the validity and generalizability of Deborah Tannen’s (1990) theory of difference in gender in the use of language in the context of suicide. Particularly, the study questions the part of the theory claiming that men tend to deliver information more than feelings while women do the opposite. To achieve this aim, the researchers adopts Searle's (1969) classification of speech acts and felicity conditions in the analysis of genuine suicide notes written by equal numbers of men and women. The analysis reveals that in suicidal context, the use of speech acts for delivering information may rank highly in notes written by women. The same case appears in that expressing feelings speech acts are predominated in notes written by men.

Abstract

The present study examines the issue of gender differences in the use of speech acts in notes written by suicidal people. The study aims at investigating the validity and generalizability of Deborah Tannen’s (1990) theory of difference in gender in the use of language in the context of suicide. Particularly, the study questions the part of the theory claiming that men tend to deliver information more than feelings while women do the opposite. To achieve this aim, the researchers adopts Searle's (1969) classification of speech acts and felicity conditions in the analysis of genuine suicide notes written by equal numbers of men and women. The analysis reveals that in suicidal context, the use of speech acts for delivering information may rank highly in notes written by women. The same case appears in that expressing feelings speech acts are predominated in notes written by men.
