Relation Between Index-Finger Extension and the Acoustic Quality of Cooing in Three-Month-Old Infants.
Nobuo, Masataka
Journal of Child Language, v22 n2 p247-57 Jun 1995
Reports on two studies that looked at the spontaneous face-to-face interaction of three-month-old infants with their mothers. Facial and manual actions, gaze direction, and vocalizations were coded. Results showed a correlation between index-finger extensions and syllabic sounds, suggesting a strong connection between speech and the pointing gesture long before the infant can actually talk. (JL)
