Even babies wouldn’t be that confusing… r-right?
When your main attempts at communication all sound pretty much the same to the untrained ear, it presents difficulties. Most parents just keep trying different things until the kid shuts up.
Actually, I was watching one of those women’s talk shows once (I think it was called “Here’s Jenny” or something like that).
The guest speaker talked about how ALL human babies how the same instinctive vocabulary at birth.
She said they had six distinctive utterances (she didn’t call them ‘cries’).
She played a recording of each and told what each meant.
My problem… I could hear no differences between the cries, but most of the women in the studio audience acted like each cry was extremely distinctive from all the others.
I put it down to ‘mother’s instinct’, but I have since learned that a female’s senses are about 20% more discerning than a male’s.
Meaning she sees 20% more color, hears 20% more sound variables, 20% more scent, etc.
Hand signals, Olivia.
This reminds me of baby Hugo from “Go Away Unicorn!” He’s always trying to talk (usually with the obvious solution to their problems).
