According to research, many twins have some form of a language delay. Despite the considerable research on twin language, the cause of these language delays is unknown. Several of the factors that have been proposed include genetics, prematurity, and low birth weight. I am a twin, and through this research, I reflect on my own language development from both memory and the records my family kept. The data from the records indicate that, unlike many other twins, I did not have a language delay. Despite the lack of a language delay, the data indicates the possibility that the environment and early interactions influence language development.
