Do Women Talk More Than Men?

“My wife said I don’t listen to her – or something like that.”

Women speak about 20,000 words a day. Men speak about 7,000.  If a husband uses up all his 7,000 words at work, and the wife uses a like amount during the day, then when they get home, the husband has used up all his words.  The wife still has 13,000 more words to say.

A University of Maryland study says there is a reason women are more talkative than men.  They have a higher amount of the Foxp2, known as the language protein, in their brains.
