    The University of Wisconsin-Madison has posted an article on research in
first language acquisition by psychologist Jenny Saffran, entitled: "Infants
may offer clues to language development", reported by Emily Carlson. The
article, dated 2/17/03, begins:

    You may not know it, but you took a course in linguistics as a baby. By
listening to the talk around them, infants pick up sound patterns that help
them understand the speech they hear, according to new research from
UW-Madison. But this research also shows that some patterns are easier to
identify, suggesting that the development of human language may have been
shaped by what infants could learn.
