Numbers in the women's and men's spontaneous speech

Research outputpeer-review

Abstract

The most part of research on semiotics of numbers belongs to traditional initial texts (the Scripture, epos, small folklore forms) or to literary texts of classical culture while there are no data on distribution of numbers in the oral spontaneous speech. In this presentation, the material received is based on Russian speech corpus "OneSpeaker's Day" (ORD corpus), containing real-life recordings of everyday communication. The given study contains 232,370 words. The sample presents speech of 209 persons (95 men, 94 women, 20 children). Men's and women's frequency lists have been compiled on the subsamples of 83,371 and 115,110 words, correspondingly. It was determined that numbers do not belong
to the most common words of the spontaneous speech (among the most frequent 50 words there is no designation of numbers). Among a hundred frequency words of the female speech there is number 1 in the form of "ras" which is homonymous to an adverb and the union, with a rank 90-91, and among a hundred frequency words of the men's speech number 1 (in shape "one" and "ras" meets ranks 71-75), 2 (rank 82) and 3 (rank 96). Thus, both in men's and women’s speech the frequency of use of numbers (1, 2, 3 in decreasing order of frequencies) is the same as in the Russian paremias of meetings of V. I. Dahl (the middle of the 19th century) and V. M. Mokiyenko and T. G. Nikitina (the beginning of the 21st
century), however, in the men's speech they meet higher frequency and within the first hundred from variety more (3 numbers in the men's speech and 1 in women's).
