The relation between language and play was also supported by a subgroup analysis which showed that early talkers displayed significantly more symbolic play than late talkers. In the academy, women and a few sympathetic men started to examine the practices and methods of their disciplines, subjecting them to similar critiques for similar ends: the elimination of societal inequities based upon gender.
I'll also explain the main characteristics of these different speech types and the ways in which they're used. For one, the progress of the intervention can be short lived.
