Telling the difference between a German and French speaker isnâ€™t difficult. But you may be more surprised to know that you could have a good stab at distinguishing between German and French babies based on their cries. The bawls of French newborns tend to have a rising melody, with higher frequencies becoming more prominent as the cry progresses. German newborns tend to cry with a falling melody.
So you know what that means?Â those lil buggers are listening to us while they’re in the womb.Â Scary stuff. Imagine if they could understand all that noise, eh?
