with accent learned in womb
From ABC News, November 5, one more problem for pro-aborts claiming
preborns aren't human:
Think newborns just eat, sleep and wail the same way across the world?
That's not so, according to a new study which found that babies cry
with an accent within the first week of life.
By recording cries of 60 babies born to French or German parents,
researchers discovered that babies cry with the same "prosody" or
melody used in their native language by the 2nd day of life.
French newborns in the study ended their cries with a lilt at the end
typically heard in French.
German babies, however, started their cries intensely and dropped off
at the end - much like the emphasis their German parents put in a
sentence, according to a study published Thursday in Current Biology.
Experts in child development say the most exciting part of this
discovery is not that infants recognize the melody of their language,
but that the newborns may have the ability to use what they heard in
the womb to then control their cries.
