Babies learn some early words by touch
Babies learn some early words by touch

Awash in streams of adult chatter, babies fish out and recognize some of their first words thanks to well-timed touches from their caregivers, a new study suggests.

An experimenter’s synchronized taps on an elbow or knee enabled 4-month-olds to notice nonsense words embedded in spoken strings of syllables, say psycholinguist Amanda Seidl of Purdue University in West Lafayette, Ind., and her colleagues. Timed touches from parents and other adults as they say the names of body parts may explain how babies tune in to words such as feet and tummy months before recognizing other nouns, the scientists propose April 16 in Developmental Science.

“Caregivers’ touch cues may play a key role in infants’ ability to recognize body part words so early, and these words could provide a toehold for learning other early nouns,” Seidl says.
