Epicene pronominal forms in written English: variation across genres
The following paper summarises the general results of a study that focuses on the complexities surrounding the use of gender-neutral pronouns in contemporary English. The corpus under scrutiny covers texts coming from journalistic and academic genres. The data were collected over a period of two years from 2008 to 2010. I would like to thank Mónia Benito, Natalia Gerrero, Marta Moitre and Gloria Sánchez for their participation in the gathering and analysis of the data presented here.
