After analyzing 3.5 million books, researchers learn most common adjectives used to describe men and women

Researchers at the University of Copenhagen analyzed 3.5 million English language books published between 1900 to 2008 to identify the adjectives most frequently applied to men and women. Unsurprisingly, women were described by their bodies and appearance and men were described by their thoughts and behavior.

Interesting, Danes using English books to determine what adjectives are used in English, why not Danish?

Given the number of books,and the relatively new attitude of many more that women are and deserve to have the same opportunities and respect as we males, it may taken another 108 years before an assay of this sort comes up with equity, eh?


Rabbi Menahem Mendel of Vorki was asked what constitutes a true Jew.

He said: “Three things are fitting for us: upright kneeling, silent screaming, motionless dance.”

You may be right!  I wonder if anyone has taken a poll on men who write under a woman's name and the women who write using a man's name ????
