Today, thanks to the systematic studies on the several linguistic corpora, most of the sociolinguists and discourse analysts believe that there are remarkable differences in the style and use of the language by men and women. However, such differences have not yet been analyzed thoroughly and statistically on the fictional prose of male and female writers. In the present article, computational approaches are employed to reach a stylistic objective on the gender-based differences between the use of language in several important novels written in English. First, a small corpus of some major English novels was formed. Then this corpus was analyzed on the basis of NLP from simple counting of the linguistic units, up to the more complicated statistical methods. The results of this research reveal that from the issues cited for the features of male and female's writings, female writers have made more use of the words about family, negative particles, and the preposition “for”. It I hoped that this article paves the way for similar studies on the Persian fiction analysis through corpus linguistics methods.
