The article deals with the results on verbal behavior in male and female writing language and dialogues of characters in fiction. The differences between male and female speakers in terms of verbosity have been analyzed. The findings show that according to the gender stereotypes females are more verbose than males in the way of differing males and females’ speech across domains, cultures, and developmental stages. The paper provides a descriptive overview of the gender differences in terms of impersonality and verbal communication. The findings also cover the key methodological issues related to assessing gender differences in verbal behavior.
