Understanding Conversations Between Women and Men

This is the first lecture from the Modern Scholar course Communication Matters I: He Said, She Said taught by Professor Deborah Tannen.

In this lecture linguistics professor and bestselling author Deborah Tannen describes many of the basic differences in communication between men and women. She starts with an example she discovered when examining the conversations of kids and teenagers. Girls tended to talk to each other face to face while boys generally sat at angles or parallel and looked around the room while they talked to each other. She mentions many other general patterns of behavior in the communication habits of men and women and she hopes that by becoming more aware of these differences we can become more understanding in our communication with the opposite sex. This lecture is available on MP3 download.

You Just Don't Understand: Women and Men in Conversation

As sociolinguistics expert Dr. Deborah Tannen reveals, no one is to blame for the familiar feeling among men and women that members of the opposite sex just don't understand them. The problem dates back to childhood, when children learn to use language in distinctly different ways; years later, their adult efforts to talk to each other often place them at cross purposes - even when both mean well and are sincerely trying to communicate. Now in this groundbreaking audio program, Dr. Tannen illustrates how the best intentions can go easily astray between spouses, family members, co-workers and friends and gives valuable insight to help you communicate better than ever before. This best seller has revolutionized the way men and women talk and listen to each other - at home, at work, and wherever the communications gap between the sexes can lead to troublesome misunderstandings.
