Equal Status

An interesting use of linguistic analysis: the boffins at GenderAnalyzer have created a site which 'uses Artificial Intelligence to determine if a homepage is written by a man or woman'. On running SCC English through it, this was the message:-

We guess is written by a woman (50%); however it's quite gender neutral.

Since this is an equal opportunities group blog, we're quite pleased with this interesting result.

We took the liberty of also checking on our Science colleagues, and this is the result from the Frog Blog :-

We think is written by a man (61%).

Come on, boys.

Hi there English Bloggers! Just to note that some frogs can actually change sex on occasion so we are very surprised here at the Frog Blog that we are not gender equal. Who knows, give us a couple of years and we might change? Keep up the good work!
