dc.description.abstractThis study investigated the effects of gender on requests in Saudi Arabic in WhatsApp. 20 males and 20 females between the ages of 18 and 25 were recruited and asked to provide the researcher with as many instances of requests as they could from messaging history. The CCSARP coding scheme was used to analyze the resulting 102 requests. It was found that the males and females were similar regarding the directness of their requests. The majority of both genders preferred to use direct strategies in requesting. They were also similar in the use of the request perspective strategies. Both genders preferred to emphasize the role of the addressee rather than avoiding imposition. As for differences, the females made more internal and external modifications to core requests compared to males. They also used more conventionally indirect requests than their male counterparts who preferred non-conventionally indirect requests.en_US
