When looking at Gender theories e.g. Deborah Cameron, Robin Lakoff, Pilkington etc I am curious as to whether gender theories (relevant/accurate or not) apply to those who are transgender? What I mean by this is would they conform to their biological/birth sex or to the gender they identify as being? So say an individual was born a girl but identified as a boy, would their language conform to biological/societal expectations and therefore in Cameron's case use euphemisms , be more grammatically correct and use 'cleaner' language or would they actually conform to their identified gender of a male and 'conform' to male theories such as Zimmerman and West where men supposedly dominate 90% of the conversation...?

If anyone is transgender here it would be interesting to hear your point of view. Additionally, I apologise if I phrased anything incorrectly so that It may appear insulting.

Also apologies for the lengthy inquisition and if this is nonsensical but I fear I am being driven by a 2AM accidental late coffee sleep deprivation eternal state of being.

Thank you
