This article offers a further contribution to the studies already published concerned with the specialty of gender linguistics. The focus of attention is dedicated this time to phraseologism. The starting point for the investigation is the turns of phrases taken from the Hessky/ Ettinger collection of idioms 1997) which altogether encompasses 1400 phraseological units. The article attempts to determine to what extent German phraseological usage is “gender-specific”. Similarities, parallels and differences between the male and female phraseological units expressed are revealed and explained. The various turns of phrases in the main reflect the traditional gender differences and indicate that idioms follow the relatively conservative tradition of representing the male and female / men and women.
