  1. Controlling for climate and literacy, baby-holding will be a significant predictor of consonant-vowel score (736).Ember, Melvin - Cross-language predictors of consonant-vowel syllables, 2000 - 4 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Mean number of syllables per word will be negatively associated with consonant-vowel score (736).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.

  4. Colder climates will have lower CV scores than warmer climates as Munroe et. al. (1996) suggested (733).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.

  5. The number of consonant-vowel syllables will be negatively associated with written language (61, 65).Munroe, Robert L. - Cross-cultural correlates of the consonant-vowel (cv) syllable, 1996 - 2 Variables

    This study examines whether language construction, specifically the number of consonant-vowel syllables, will be related to the environment and literacy of a society. Empirical analysis suggests that consonant-vowel syllables are more common in warmer climates and less common in written languages.

  6. The number of consonant-vowel syllables will be positively associated with temperature (60, 64).Munroe, Robert L. - Cross-cultural correlates of the consonant-vowel (cv) syllable, 1996 - 2 Variables

    This study examines whether language construction, specifically the number of consonant-vowel syllables, will be related to the environment and literacy of a society. Empirical analysis suggests that consonant-vowel syllables are more common in warmer climates and less common in written languages.

  7. Strong sonority in the speech signal will be associated with warmer climates (846).Munroe, Robert L. - Rhythmicity or sonority: response to ember and ember's "cross-language predi..., 2000 - 2 Variables

    This article presents a reanalysis of a previous study on language rhythm and consonant-vowel syllables by Ember and Ember (2000). Communicative efficiency, climate, baby-holding, literacy, and mean number of syllables per word were all considered as factors in consonant-vowel syllable use.

  8. Within language families, consonant-vowel syllable use will be negatively associated with writing system (43, 50).Munroe, Robert L. - Climate and the consonant-vowel (CV) syllable: a replication within language..., 1999 - 2 Variables

    Using a sample of four language families, this paper replicates previous findings on the relationship between consonant-vowel syllable use and climate. An secondary finding on the relationship between consonant-vowel syllable use and writing system was also replicated.

  9. Words "used primarily in writing are likely to display lower CV values than words that are used mostly for oral communication" (52).Munroe, Robert L. - Climate and the consonant-vowel (CV) syllable: a replication within language..., 1999 - 2 Variables

    Using a sample of four language families, this paper replicates previous findings on the relationship between consonant-vowel syllable use and climate. An secondary finding on the relationship between consonant-vowel syllable use and writing system was also replicated.
