Unborn babies can detect different languages, new study says
A new study from researchers at Kansas University has found that unborn babies are able to distinguish between different languages as early a month before they are born.
The study found that unborn children, at an average of 8 months in the womb, are able to distinguish the difference between someone speaking in English and someone speaking Japanese, even if the languages were being spoken by the same person.
Two dozen pregnant American women and their in-utero babies took part in the study conducted by a team from KU’s Department of Linguistics, and published in the journal NeuroReport. Click here for more from CNA/EWTN News
