From the Paper:

"Language allows for individuals to build relationships with one another. During the first few months of life, the baby is cuddled, bathes, fed, changed, and dressed, usually parents spend time talking to their baby while performing these activities. "During these activities, parents and caregivers comment on the infants' actions and often repeat and exaggerate their vocalizations" (Lu 2000). These become a way for parents to form a social bond with their children. "This social interaction helps build intimacy between adults and infants, enhances infants' interests in their environment, and provides them with stimulation for later language development" (Lu 2000).
"Studies so far have shown that the earliest age that children seem to pair sounds is at six months. What this shows is that infants begin forming a "lexicon with sound patterns linked directly to socially significant people, such as their parents" (Mama! 1999)."
