The article adopts a pubic law perspective with the purpose to analyse forms and costs of changing legislative and administrative language in the framework of gender policies. In this light, the article considers both language neutralization and language differentiation (feminization). Furthermore, the real problem is if it would be possible (and possibly with what limits) to coerce legislative and administrative language as a tool for policies. In fact, coercion of (but also nudging on) language presents administrative costs and side-effects because relavant freedoms are involved (as freedom of speech and freedom of teaching); because controls and sanctions are needed to enforce; but overall because language as institutions is not a proper object of regulation.
