When i do my readings, i have encountered with these interesting facts about boys and girls' oral language use. I'll summarize them for you...:-
-are more outspoken, assertive & confident
-are unhelpfully dominant
-are less likely to build on the contributions of others
-make longer verbal contributions
-use language to vie for status
-better listeners than boys
-tend to defer to the ideas of others
-are better at taking turns
-take longer to become involve in discussions
-use language to draw out and include others
-speak tentatively and with more need for approval
->Boys are competitive, selfish (unhelpfully dominant & interrupt more), like to nag more than girls, and sweet talker.
-Girls are patient (better listeners & good at taking turns), unique, considerate( involving others in discussions), and more sensitive.
