Abstract

The use of examples in a learner’s dictionary is important because they can help learners of a language clearly understand the meaning of a lemma and how to use the lemma in a sentence or utterance. In the use of examples in dictionary, the words female and male can be found in the examples to explain the lemma. This study was conducted to investigate the representations of female and male in the Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary 9th edition (OALD9). The data in this study were collected by taking the whole example sentences that used the words female and male in OALD9. The researcher made a list of the whole example sentences that used both words female and male, made a list of the whole example sentences that used only words female or male. Then, the researcher used BNC-web to find the collocation of both words female and male in order see the collocation of both words in the each example sentences of OALD9. Further, the researcher used both order of frequency and the log-likelihood of the words female and male. The results show that there are 30 lemmata that have example sentences containing gender stereotypes. Five lemmata are included as typicallity examples and 25 lemmata are included as informative examples. The study shows that female is figured as harmful, weak, emotional, not attractive, and taking care the family. Meanwhile, male is figured as strong, healthy, attractive, domination, protective, more intelligent, and compete with the female. For the profession, female is also figured as employee, teacher, nurse, and judge. Meanwhile, male is figured as manager and hunter. The gender stereotypes of female and male are not equal in job, in the work place, and in activities that involve female.
