Study: Baby talk helps language development

Baby talk may sound silly, but it speeds infants’ language development, a new study suggests. Tots who more often heard baby talk words like bunny or choo-choo developed bigger vocabularies between 9 and 21 months of age. Words that end in “y” like tummy and doggy and those that repeat sounds such as choo-choo and night-night had the biggest benefit. Such words may help babies identify words in speech, according to the University of Edinburgh researchers.
