The researchers record the cries of 30 infants from the French, and 30 infants from germany, and analyze the frequency, patterns of melodies, and high-low tone. The crying baby from the french often start with low and then rising tone, while the baby from germany, often starting with high tones and then the lower.
Both groups of infants are imitating the typical pattern of the language of their parents. Thus, it is believed that language development begins in the womb and infant language began with his first cry.
