Babies track word patterns long before word-learning starts
"From the moment they're born, babies are highly attuned to communicate and motivated to interact. And they're great listeners." - Maitani from Bookmarklet
"New research from the University of Notre Dame shows that during the first year of life, when babies spend so much time listening to language, they're actually tracking word patterns that will support their process of word- learning that occurs between the ages of about 18 months and two years." - Maitani
""My research suggests that there are some surprising clues in the sound stream that may help babies learn the meanings of words. They can distinguish different kinds of words like nouns and verbs by information in that sound stream."" - Maitani
