Twin-Singleton Differences in Verbal Ability: Where Do They Stem from?
Lytton, Hugh; And Others
Intelligence, v11 n4 p359-369 Oct-Dec 1987
Fifteen monozygotic and 22 dizygotic twin pairs, who were found to be lower in verbal ability than matched singletons at age two years, were compared at age nine years. Although twins still showed lower verbal ability, more variance in verbal ability was accounted for by the mothers' education and birth weight than by being a twin. (SLD)
