Research has shown that adults and children use different styles of communication during traditional face-to-face conversations, written communication and the modern forms of communication such as email. These differences have been found to be due to variables such as the gender and/or age of the conversation partner and familiarity or status. The present study examined the communication differences of adolescents when they communicate with different recipients through the use of text messages. Participants sent eight messages to four different recipients. The recipients were a male and female of the same age and an adult male and female. Participants were also asked to complete a questionnaire detailing how they use their phone for communication. Analysis found significant relationships between the variables and certain of the elements identified as being codes of male or female communication. The results indicated that both male and female participants used the gender preferential codes of language in their messages. However male participants tended to accommodate to the gender of the recipient more than female participants.
