Give Me That Baby Talk

Most incredible thing I have ever heard of. There has been a study done that has discovered that moms from all around the world speak to their babies in just the same way. The universal language has become known as “motherese”. The researchers stated that baby talk was actually just a lot of cute sounds. The particular sounds and words that moms choose to make up a special kind of communication they use with their babies. Actually these sounds that babies hear are important in their further language development.

What is interesting is that the research was done with 24 different moms who spoke to their babies ranging in age from seven months to one year. They also spoke in ten different languages among them English, Spanish, Mandarin, Russian, and Hebrew. Each mom would change the tone of her voice when interacting with her baby but all in all, what they did was similar in all languages.
