Unravel the Babies Conversations (Complete With Video)
Babies…oh….babies. Babies are the most cute and adorable creature in the world. No one can stop laughing in seeing the babies act. Even my friend “acaetnna” said, “How can we fail to smile when we see a baby dribbling, huge eyes and those little chubby cheeks”. She’s right about babies. You can see how babies so cute in one of my hubs with the title,"Everybody Love Babies". They have own world. Sometimes we don’t understand what they thinking about. That’s why film industry always got many inspirations from baby. We can see several movies with baby topic. Such as: Baby’s Day Out, Baby Geniuses, Babies (documentary movie), Son of the Mask, etc. They know how babies always cute and they have their own style, even we difficult to direct them. They act very natural. This makes the audience laugh.
YouTube phenomenon about conversations between twin babies
There’s a phenomenon related with babies on the internet. A video recording showing two babies get involved with serious conversations in the kitchen. This video is really unique and funny. We can see this on YouTube. Again, YouTube has a big role in creating famous people. And they help us to speak up to the world. YouTube become a good media to make us famous and seen millions of people from around the world.
Two-minute clip shows the twins Sam and Ren McEntee brothers (their age about 17 months). They look enjoy their conversation, exchange of life where they laugh and raise their hand firmly even nodded their heads. This video is capable of making Internet users to laugh and this video has been watched more than 11 million on YouTube. The audience was stunned to see these babies who seem really understood what is being said to each other. Personally, I can’t stop laughing during watch this video. From the video we can see twin babies were standing next to a refrigerator, speaking to each other using their own language. There’s a question. What language they use? Of course they used baby language. What type of language is it? I’ll take from my blog to answer. It is a special language and only them who can understand what they talking about. From this video we can see how they act like adults in serious conversation, even follow their body language with each other to explain. Though we only heard, “ta..ta..tatata..ta..ta..tatata..ta..ta”, but their act was so adorable. This was really funny video.
Finally, this phenomenon has been revealed
ABC news said, these twins babies were speaking in a “secret language”. However, did the twins create their own secret language? Linguists said no. Most twins do seem able to communicate with high-level language but actually they can’t do this. However, toddlers have a lot of insight to learn how to communicate. "These two sweet toddlers show something excessive," said Dr. Virginia Valian as a chief of Department of Psychology, The Hunter College Language Acquisition Research Center , New York. Language Acquisition Research Center (LARC) investigates knowledge and use of language in young monolingual English speakers (two- and three-year-olds), bilingual children (four- to eight-year-olds), and second language learners (four- to eight-year-olds and adults. This information was taken from http://www.hunter.cuny.edu. For further information about Dr.Valian and her research team project. We can see at www.hunter.cuny.edu/littlelinguist/projects.html.
According to her, reduplicated babbling like that is very common although not all children do so extreme like them, she continued. The twins do not use secret language to convey their conversation. "They just say 'da da da' to each other," she said. In addition, they imitate a detailed conversation. “They never interfere with each other and rarely overlap while talking. They stared to each other. Even their movements were aligned, "she explained. The most interesting thing is, the twins sounded as if they were speaking with intonation, rhythm, and pressure used by adults. The aspect of this speaking was called prosody. Babies start learning prosody since being in mother's womb. The research has shown, even 24 hours old baby can distinguish different prosody
For example, the baby who was born in an English speaking environment, they were able to distinguish between English and French language. Why this could be happened, because babies do a lot of analysis of language patterns in the womb. Most children learn self-expression through his parents' original prosody from the age of 10 months. Based on this case, actually the twin babies on YouTube was a good example. They will begin to speak. Dr.Valian also said, “I want the parent continuing to record it, because it will be very interesting to see them begin to replace the babble into the real words".
