Changing Meanings

To understand how we got into this morass, it is necessary to recall the fact that before the second half of the 20th century, the term "gender" represented a distinction within linguistics. Gender difference referred to the distinction between feminine and masculine nouns and adjectives. It was not associated with human sex difference - until 1955.
