Reversals on Children

Reverse Speech research has discovered that children speak backwards before they do forwards. From as early as 4 months of age they are pronouncing simple words in reverse and by the time they reach 13-14 months of age, complex sentences are forming in reverse.

In this example my 13 month old daughter was in the bath trying to pick up a cup. She was unable to do so and reached out to me for assistance. The reversals says: "David. Help me." When you listen to the forward note that she says "Daddy" – forwards. The reversed word, David, occurred on the forward word Daddy. This shows the beginning of speech complementarity and the young child beginning to connect concepts David is Daddy. – Download mp3 file
