From their very first days, the cries of newborns already bear the mark of the language their parents speak, scientists now find.
French newborns tend to cry with rising melody patterns, slowly increasing in pitch from the beginning to the end, whereas German newborns seem to prefer falling melody patterns, findings that are both consistent with differences between the languages.
This suggests infants begin picking up elements of language in the womb, long before their first babble or coo.
Sounds like nonsense to me! But it has been shown that â€śglossolaliaâ€ť is only done in the patterns of speech of the language that is native to the speaker, so aside from the question, What about Tongues?, it shows that this behavior has nothing to do with Christianity of the Bible. We are closely tied to the language that we have been raised in.
But, hey, if babies get a head start in speaking, that's ok with me.
