She looks up at her mother chin high, not knowing what to say, she says “da da da, ma, ma “ in an angelic voice. This is a moment that we have all witnessed on somebody whether it is our niece, sister, cousin or friend’s baby. II. Previously scientists thought babies might make the noises to exercise their mouths or to improve lip and tongue control, but they were wrong. Scientists have found for the first time strong evidence that the incoherent noises of an infant are linked to language. Researchers have now analyzed the mouth motions of babies babbling, smiling or making other noises and have concluded that the baby sounds are coming directly from the babies’ efforts to use their speech and language.

Laura-Ann Petitto of Dartmouth taken from the New York Times article, "Because the left side of the brain is thought to control language, this mean that babbling is a fundamentally linguistic activity. Petitto said that since the left side of the brain controls the right side of the mouth, then the findings suggest that the left side of the brain is sending the babbling signals. Demonstrate how all 3 arguments support my thesis III. More movement towards the right side of the mouth indicates language functions specialize in the brain at a very early age.
