on Oprah today:

After testing her baby language theory on more than 1,000 infants around the world, Priscilla Dunstan says there are five words that all babies 0–3 months old say—regardless of race and culture:

* Neh="I'm hungry"
* Owh="I'm sleepy"
* Heh="I'm experiencing discomfort"
* Eair="I have lower gas"
* Eh="I need to burp"

Those "words" are actually sound reflexes, Priscilla says. "Babies all around the world have the same reflexes, and they therefore make the same sounds," she says. If parents don't respond to those reflexes, Priscilla says the baby will eventually stop using them.
