RichardsonのPamelaにおける性差に基づく対語について

Abstract
English has a multitude of word-pairs based on gender differences. In their usage, however, many of the paired words have not been treated equally in a strict sense as can typically be seen in the case of 'man' and 'woman.' The present article discusses the most basic issue of masculine and feminine tenns mainly through a historical perspective. Our linguistic material here is Samuel Richardson's Pamela (1740) which offers good examples to show gender and class differences of address forms; for its theme concerns a maid-servant's conflict against her master and his equals. We hope to explore the author's social attitudes reflected in his choice of gender-specific words.
