論文中文摘要:本論文旨在探討男性及女性部落客在電腦中介溝通環境中使用漢語修辭學及其修辭功能之方式。鑒於電腦中介溝通獨特的資訊(informatics)及關聯性(referencing) (Barnes, 2003),使用者在網路語言環境中性別身分及語言使用的關係在許多文獻中已有探討。然而,許多文獻在分析過程中往往採用英語語料且忽略修辭語及其功能在話語或文章中的重要。
論文英文摘要:The purpose of this thesis is to explore the interaction between gender and figurative language in a Chinese CMC context. The relationship between gender and language use in CMC has received considerable attention from scholars for its distinctive ways of “informatics” (data storage and retrieval) and “referencing” (interpersonal connections) (Barnes, 2003), yet most of the studies laid little focus on non-literal / figurative expressions produced by non-English speakers.
In this research, data were collected from forty tourism blogs authored by Taiwanese and posted on the largest travel forum Beibao Kezhan背包客棧 in Taiwan (20 males and 20 females) in order to minimize cultural and genre influences on their linguistic performance. Qualitative analyses were conducted to examine the way males and females use figurative language as a whole, individually, and functionally; quantitative analyses (by running chi-square analysis) were further carried out to test whether significant differences in the use of figurative language exist between the two genders.
Results of the analyses showed that (1) figurative language as a whole is, regardless of gender, pervasive and universal in this given context and that (2) both the use of individual figures of speech and of figurative functions are governed by genre and gender, in the order of priority. In terms of genre, both male and female bloggers unanimously used structurally simpler and pragmatically more accessible figures of speech to facilitate their communication. In gender terms, it is argued that different male and female cultural perceptions towards the using tourism blogs determine the way they use individual figures of speech and figurative functions. Males used more Design type figures (for aesthetics) to create effects on texts so that they were able to display their knowledge and skills and thus create their own identity in this virtual community. Females used more Adjustment type figures of speech (for communicability) to help themselves to express their opinions and feelings and to establish, maintain, and strengthen their social ties with readers.
This thesis systematically sets up a model for the analysis of figurative language (individual figures of speech and figurative functions) and bridges the gap between figurative language and sociolinguistic studies in a CMC context. It is hoped to bring new perspectives to the studies of figurative language, gendered language, and CMC.
