Syntactic and cognitive issues in investigating gendered coreference
Lauren Ackerman
June 2018

This squib examines how the multifaceted nature of "gender" (human and linguistic) interacts with grammatical operations such as coreference dependency formation. It particularly focuses on how personal names and referents who identify as nonbinary can provide insight into the cognitive representations of gender. A three-tiered model of gender is proposed that unites grammatical, cognitive, social, and biological aspects and describes how implications of this model might be tested in future work.
