We know that babies pick up on the "affect" or emotional content of speech rather than the actual words, says Gerald McRoberts, a psychologist at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.But it is still unclear precisely how adults use various acoustic properties in their voice, such as rhythm, pitch and stress, to communicate different meanings to infants.

So McRoberts, and Malcolm Slaney of IBM's Almaden Research Center in San Jose, California, designed a computer program to evaluate the properties of the speech parents use as they talk to their children.

McRoberts admits it is possible that men communicate as effectively as women, but do so using speech characteristics that the program failed to pick up.Or they may have been less relaxed in the lab.But the experiment does show unequivocally that the mothers and fathers talked to children differently.
The only way to be sure whether babies can tell the difference would be to "ask" them- for instance, by seeing how they respond to voices as their acoustic parameters are systematically changed.This would be difficult for many reasons, says McRoberts.
