TheMresearcher aimed to explore gender-specific vocabulary in context including common nouns, pronouns, terms of address, and occupation for different gender. To gather data sufficiently, researcher selected six short stories from nine Units of the six chapters. The analysis of these genderspecific vocabulary was conducted with WordSmith 8.0 software text analyzer. The results revealed that the common nouns for female characters in the short story were written meaning that women played significant roles in Cambodian society as could be read of most of the activities in the story. In addition, pronouns utilized in short stories representing female characters double to males. This result signified the roles of female as main characters in the short story. Moreover, the name for each character of the story is written to present the characteristics of women. Most names are female main characters of the short stories.
