Sex Differences in Early Language Development.
Horgan, Dianne
Sex differences in language development were studied. Protocols from 54 children, aged 2;0 to 4;2, were analyzed with Mean Length of Utterance (MLU) as the independent variable. When MLU's reached 3.75 to 4.0, differences began to favor girls. Results are discussed in terms of a social learning model and a cognitive model. (Author)
