You can buy resources on tesresources. Get Tom Hollins' Ultimate Guide to ALevel English Language. It is soo good, has the theories nicely written out and has example answers. Look on the AQA website for exemplars, mark schemes etc. Firstratetutors, Mr Smith english, mr bruff, "alevel english Language" and alice preece yt videos are also good. Some of them focus on explaining theories, some are on AOs. Watch them all. Alice Preece has a video with a googledocs link to all her mindmaps, exemplars and A*/A model answers. I also semi recently posted a thread called Anybody have Model Answers for English Language ALevel?. Anelpe replied with a link to their own model answers. https://smallpdf.com/file#s=48b76e60-c7f9-44c1-994b-930dda991bea . Please thank them if you find those useful!

Men tend to use more agentic language, emphasizes ability to take action, achieve goals, and assert dominance. Words like "success," "leadership," "strong," and "win.

Men use competitive language, comparing themselves to others,to emphasize their superiority or dominance.

Women use more relational language: emotions, relationships, etc. words like "love," "care," "support," and "community."

Women are more likely to share their emotions.

Just read up on it and here are a few general ideas, ofc you would have to prove this stuff with transcripts. As for theorists, i searched up "studies on men and women Language social media" and some googlescholar things came up. Some stuff on facebook studies and the like.
