ABSTRACT
The article presents a study done at the University of Reading, England, which suggests that babies can learn new words not related to their daily routines. Parents of 9-month-olds were given books and picture cards and then used them to play simple sorting games. Three months later, each child was shown pictures and asked to look at the matching word spoken by the researcher. Children who had played the games looked at the correct pictures, while children who had not played did not.
