This thesis will investigate whether the Japanese men use strongly masculine forms when speaking in society, and moreover how the conversation partner’s age, sex and status affects the speakers language or not. It will also target a greater group of Japanese men in the Japanese society, not only the white collar company men’s language will be investigated, but also whether the smaller group of Japanese homosexual men’s language has it’s own sociolinguistic patterns or not. The different factors that influences of how Japanese men’s language differs from man to man will be dealt whit, as the matter of the men’s different age groups and the historical influences. (Less)
