    • Abstract (English):
      As is widely known, Historical Sociolinguistics studies the evolution of languages in their social, historical and cultural context. During the last forty years, the study of the relationships between language and gender has been one of the most important and best publicised areas of sociolinguistic research. Such research, carried out both synchronically and diachronically, has shown differences in gender-based patterns of sociolinguistic behaviour between current and past societies. The aim of this paper is to show the results and conclusions from a historical sociolinguistic study correlating the factor of gender with linguistic features such as mood and polarity in a married couple of the Paston family (John Paston I and Margaret Paston), from one of the most important linguistic corpora of late medieval English (the Paston Letters). Although their statistical validity and representativeness cannot lead to generalisation, the analysis does allow us to detect some tentative differences in the sociolinguistic behaviour of men and women in late English medieval society that might be reflected in interpersonal epistolary communication. Both social and linguistic extrapolations are inevitable, implying the ways in which language may reflect and help to maintain social attitudes towards women and men. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
    • Abstract (Spanish):
      La sociolingüística histórica estudia la evolución de las lenguas en su contexto sociohistórico y cultural. Por su parte, el estudio de las relaciones entre la lengua y el género ha sido una de las áreas más tratadas en la investigación sociolingüística durante los últimos cuarenta años. La investigación en lenguaje y género, sincrónica y diacrónica, ha demostrado la existencia de distintos patrones de comportamiento sociolingüístico condicionados por el género del hablante tanto en la sociedad actual como en la antigua. El presente trabajo muestra los resultados y conclusiones alcanzados sobre un estudio sociohistórico en el que se correlaciona el factor género con los rasgos lingüísticos de modo (indicativo-subjuntivo) y polaridad (afirmativa-negativa) en un matrimonio de la familia Paston (John Paston I y Margaret Paston), de uno de los corpus lingüísticos más relevantes del inglés medial tardío (las Paston Letters). Si bien carece de validez estadística y representatividad, el análisis nos permite detectar tímidamente algunas diferencias en el comportamiento sociolingüístico de los hombres y mujeres de la sociedad medieval inglesa que podrían reflejarse en la comunicación epistolar interpersonal. Resultan inevitables las interpretaciones y extrapolaciones tanto sociales como lingüísticas, sugiriendo la forma en que la lengua refleja, y ayuda a mantener, actitudes sociales diferentes ante hombres y mujeres.
