This corpus-based Critical Discourse Analysis leverages the toolboxes of Corpus Linguistics and Systemic Functional Linguistics to analyse, compare and contrast meaning-making in user-generated content (public newsfeed) created by women (she/her) and men (he/him) on LinkedIn, a web-based professional networking platform, with a view to generate insight into the ways women may be using this platform differently to men, and hypothesise about the possible implications.
