Abstract

Abstract Communicative style is an important aspect of teachers’ and students’ communication in the class. The use of communicative styles in the class by teachers can influence the success of interaction in the class. This communicative style can be influenced by many factors; one of them is gender differences. For that purpose, this article aims to explore the characteristics of women’s language applied by teachers in the class. The researchers applied a descriptive qualitative research design. This research was conducted in one state university in Makassar and took two female lecturers as the subject of study. To collect data, the researchers recorded the teaching process of the two female lecturers in the class. The recordings which were taken three times for each lecturer were transcribed and analyzed based on the features of women’s language proposed by Lakoff (1973; 1976; 2004). Findings from this study revealed that female teachers applied several characteristics of women’s language in their teaching process. Female lecturers applied some hedges, intensifiers, some emphatic stress, question tags, and some super polite forms. This finding reveals that women's language is used by women in every setting of communication, such as in the teaching process. The communicative styles of the female lecturers were influenced by the notions of women’s language. Findings from this study are significant in the discussion of language and gender in communication. The results are also beneficial for practices in the language teaching process, as input for teachers/lecturers in their effort to create effective classroom interaction.
