"I bet there is many a nagged husband who would dearly love it if their better half gave her tongue a rest. A recent study in America showed overwhelmingly that women talked more than men and suggested that this was because they genuinely believed that they had more than men to talk about. Another study showed that the reason women talked twice as much as their men folk during the course of a day was because they had to keep repeating themselves!
My personal favourite piece of research however comes from one old timer aged 103 years old who lives out in Haworth Heath in the heart of Bronte land. This man concluded that from all the women he had ever met in his life, he was of the clear view that women most certainly talked more than men, but said much less. Now, that's what I call a clear consensus lads!" William Forde: December 17th, 2014.
