  10. There will be a positive relationship between the degree of baby holding and CV score (732).Ember, Melvin - Cross-language predictors of consonant-vowel syllables, 2000 - 2 Variables

    This study tests predictors of consonant-vowel prevalence cross-culturally. Authors reevaluate the findings of Munroe et. al. (1996) and also test a new variable—baby-holding—for its relationship to CV score. Results suggest that baby-holding is a significant predictor of CV score.
