Is it stable - age aside as I know 5 is a better stability...

My DD9 is also highly verbal (140 on the WASI verbal--no full testing yet). Your DD sounds very similar to the way mine was at that age. I often wondered the same thing about my DD, but she has continued to be way above her grade-level peers. In fact, she told me last week that she sometimes feels isolated because M (gifted friend in class) is the only one who "gets it" when she's talking about things sometimes.

Chances are that yes, it's probably stable, and I would trust what your instincts are telling you about her.
