Idioglossia is a phenomenon often reported in studies concerning the language development of twins. It has been defined as the development of a unique language understood only by its originators. There has been much controversy as to whether idioglossia exists as a unique language system, or whether it is a delay and/or misuse of the conventional language system. This study was conducted to investigate the language development of three sets of identical twin males.
