I don't know if this is already on here but I found this: http://www.hackerfactor.com/GenderGuesser.php I'm not going to say whether or not mine was right as I think gender is a load of horse pucky in the first place but it's interesting nonetheless. [edited by Wreybies] And this is what it said I was: Genre: Informal Female = 4172 Male = 4282 Difference = 110; 50.65% Verdict: Weak MALE Weak emphasis could indicate European. Or: Genre: Formal Female = 2290 Male = 2489 Difference = 199; 52.08% Verdict: Weak MALE Weak emphasis could indicate European. Well, for one thing I'm half 'murican and half Canadian, and because I wrote this from the perspective of a female character (all be it a very disturbed one) I was curious how it determined gender since it wasn't simply a predominance of male or female pronouns. Turns out men are statistically more likely to use specifiers which I do use a lot in my comedic writing, but not so much in my creepy writing. Why? Because brevity makes it more disturbing when the POV is the darkness as the darkness wouldn't stray into purple prose nor find any of it horrifying. Exciting sure, but not horrifying. Conversely, females are more likely to use more pronouns, which can be seen in books like the Hunger Games series. I personally don't use a lot of them, but that's more a stylistic choice as I find them repetitive and annoying. Mostly, I'm curious as to where they took their samples for the research from. Was it college students, facebook, or actual literature? Apparently, it thinks Dickens is female, and a number of great British writers too, so it can't simply be specifiers and pronouns. Anyway, because it doesn't say on the website how they got their algorithm and what samples they used, I'm curious what results other writers get. Please include the writing sample to go along with the results so we can hypothesize about it's methods.
