Researchers recorded hundreds of students, capturing 30 seconds of sound for every 12-and-a-half minutes. The chattiest of the subjects, at nearly 47,000 words per day, were men.
All Things Considered, July 5, 2007 An article in this week's issue of Science blasts the popular myth that women are more talkative than men.
Researchers outfitted 396 college students 345 Americans and 51 Mexicans with devices that automatically recorded them every 12 1/2 minutes, which amounts to 4 percent of a person's daily utterances.
The researchers found that women speak a little more than 16,000 words a day. Men speak a little less than 16,000 words. The difference is not statistically significant.
