We present our entries to the Shared Task on Cross-genre Gender Detection in Dutch at CLIN 2019. We start from a simple logistic regression model with commonly used features, and consider two ways of combining training data from different sources.Our in-genre models do reasonably well, but the cross-genre models area lot worse. Post-task experiments show no clear systematic advantage of one way of combining training data sources over the other, but do suggest accuracy can be gained from a better way of setting model hyperparameters.
