    London: Men talk more than women and use more assertive language, according to a study which explodes the myth that females just can't stop talking.

    Researchers examined studies of more than 4,380 people and found that men are more likely to dominate a conversation and try to influence listeners. The difference in "talkativeness" was statistically significant, the researchers at the University of California found.

    "These findings compellingly debunk simplistic stereotypes about gender differences in language use," said social psychologists Campbell Leaper and Melanie Ayres.

    Men tended to say more than women in certain situations, such as when talking in mixed-gender groups or to wives and strangers.

    Women talked more when they were chatting to children and friends and were also more likely to use "obliging" speech when meeting strangers. "The notion that the female brain is built to systematically out-talk men is hard to square with the finding that gender differences appear and disappear, depending on the interaction context," said the researchers.

    They said the reason for the difference was not biological, adding that society's stereotypes were to blame for upholding the myth.
