This study finds that the extent of the vocabulary, variety, and production of gender-based phrases in Chinese exceeds that in Japanese. In a case study of the phrase “capable people”, a phrase with positive connotations, there is evidence to show that it is also associated with a considerable number of negative evaluative phrases in both Chinese and Japanese, especially in Japanese. This reflects a change from positive to negative, conforming to the principle of diminishing slant. Negative evaluations constitute a major feature of gender-based phrases, highlighting the negation principle lying at the deep level of Chinese and Japanese cultures.
