The 5 phases of language development are:
- Screaming (0-6 months).
- Babbling (3-9 months).
- Imitation of Sound.
- Verbal Comprehension.
- Verbal Expressions.
The sounds that a baby makes during the first few months are reflex sounds.
Babbling is a term for the child’s series of utterances that change depending on the environment. Explosive noises are another name for this. Babbling produces an increasing amount of sound over time.
When the infant is 8 or 9 months old, he starts to make noises more than only his own. At the conclusion of the first year, his stage begins. At this time, the youngster starts to respond to noises made by others with precise movements.
At this time, the youngster starts to react to noises made by others with specific activities. The first half of the second year is typically when a child reaches the Stage of Verbal Utterances. The youngster develops an active vocabulary as a result of not having to deal with sound imitation.
