|Repetition is central to how babies learn to talk, according to research from Canada.
A study from the University of BC (UBC) has found that people's brains are hard-wired from birth to notice repetition.
This would explain why the first words that infants learn are often "mama" or "dada", as both feature repetition.
"We know babies are really efficient language learners . . . that they're really good at sounds, but we had no idea," Judit Gervain, a post-doctoral fellow at the university, told the newspaper.
