blah blah Cornelius blah...

Remember that Far Side cartoon comparing what a person says ("I can't believe you dug up the garden again, Ginger! We can't leave you alone for a second!) and what the dog hears ("Blah blah blah Ginger! Blah blah blah").

It turns out it's somewhat the same for young babies. They eventually understand more than a dog, of course. But starting out they might only catch their name, which they use a starting point to parse sentences into separate words, new reseach suggests.

See the press release.
