Dewi Sartipa (2016) Babbling
There are four stages of the first language acquisition. They are cooing, babbling, one word utterances and telegraphic speec h. This paper especially discusses babbling stages in the children language acquisiton. The purpose of babbling is the first ste p o f baby in producing vocalization to communicate with other people. Babbling is referred to as a pre - linguistic skill: meaning a skill that happens prior to the development of language and speech. The way babies use their sounds shows their growing understanding of the world and other people. There are two sub - stages of babbling : (1) canonical babbling , and (2) variegated babbling .
