  1. 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.

  2. Literacy will be negatively associated with higher C-V scores 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.

  3. 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.

  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

  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. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Within language families, consonant-vowel syllable use will be positively associated with warm climate (43, 49).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.

    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.

  10. Societies in a warm climate with tall dense vegetation will use fewer vowels (850).Ember, Carol R. - High CV score: regular rhythm or sonority?, 2000 - 3 Variables

    This article is a response to Munroe, Fought, and Fought's comments on a previous study of sonority and climate. Authors suggest that the three indices used by Munroe, Fought, and Fought to measure sonority are not the same contruct and present new results that indicate an association between climate, topography, and vowel index.
