Duels and duets : why men and women talk so differently by John L Locke( Book )

18 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 632 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Why do men and women talk so differently? And how do these differences interfere with communication between the sexes? In search of an answer to these and other questions, John Locke takes the reader on a fascinating journey, from human evolution through ancient history to the present, revealing why men speak as they do when attempting to impress or seduce women, and why women adopt a very different way of talking when bonding with each other, or discussing rivals. When men talk to men, Locke argues, they frequently engage in a type of 'dueling', locking verbal horns with their rivals in a way that enables them to compete for the things they need, mainly status and sex. By contrast, much of women's talk sounds more like a verbal 'duet', a harmonious way of achieving their goals by sharing intimate thoughts and feelings in private"--
The child's path to spoken language by John L Locke( Book )

21 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and held by 562 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A major synthesis of the latest research on early language acquisition, this book explores what gives infants the remarkable capacity to progress from babbling to meaningful sentences, and what inclines a child to speak. The book examines the neurological, perceptual, social, and linguistic aspects of language acquisition in young children, from prenatal life to full linguistic capacity. To distinguish what comes naturally from what must be taught, the book also considers language in a larger biological context. It examines comparative data on nonhuman primates and songbirds and looks at special human populations, including deaf, blind, autistic, brain damaged, and tracheotomized infants. This biolinguistic approach raises questions about the evolution of linguistic capacity in the species. The 11 chapters of the book are: (1) "a Biolinguistic Approach to Language Development"; (2) "Faces and Voices: a Perceptual Path to Spoken Communication"; (3) "The Social Capacity for Spoken Language"; (4) "Vocal Communication and Vocal Learning"; (5) "The Infant Becomes Articulate"; (6) "The Neural Specialization for Linguistic Communication"; (7) "Development of the Neural Capacity for Linguistic Communication"; (8) "The Urge To Convey and the Capacity for Reference"; (9) "Development of Spoken Language"; (10) "Other Paths: The Neurobiology of Linguistic Variation"; and (11) "Reflections on the Path to Language." Contains over 1,200 references. (Et)
