Module 5 Assignment 2: Gender and Identity (Due Sunday) For this week’s assignment, you will need to explore the notion of gender in your informant’s culture (Gujarat, India) and the linguistic representations of gender. To help inform your discussion with your informant(MY PARTNER IS FROM GUJARAT), the following questions might help to guide the discussion: Are there gender hierarchies in your society(GUJARAT)? Are men and women treated the same? Are men and women valued the same? Are men and women equal in society? Are there different ways to greet men/women in your society? How might greetings differ between a man/woman who know each other? How might greetings differ between a man/woman who do not know each other? In English, we often pair words like “man and woman,” “ladies and gentleman,” “father and mother,” “him and her,” etc. Are there similar pairings in your informant’s language?
