Female Fertility Affects Male Speech Patterns
Researchers from the Florida State University conducted a study into how male speech patterns varied when speaking to women at different stages in their menstrual cycle. The study found that men tended to vary their sentence structure more when conversing with a woman who was more fertile. The data surprised researchers as previous studies showed evidence that when men are attracted to women they are inclined tomirror their speech patterns. Results suggest that men show off their conversational abilities in order to boost their credentials as potential partners.
