From the journal Glottotheory


Adnominals of different types in the texts of 16 popular modern Russian authors were analyzed to examine gender based differences. The study was conducted with the help of discriminant analysis which revealed considerable differences in female and male authors’ adnominal styles and allowed to build a discriminant model of several types of adnominals.
