    matures

    Hi,

    Does "matures" mean "adults" in this context?

    If if does, why I can not find the Noun definition for "mature" in any dictionary?

    Thanks for your help.

    John Watson argued that for very young kids, thinking is really talking out loud because they talk out loud even if they are not trying to communicate with someone in particular. As the individual matures, that overt talking to oneself becomes covert talking to oneself, but thinking sill shows up as laryngeal habits...
