Excerpt from Psychology and Pathology of Speech Development of the Child
During the early babble period the Child plays with its vocal and articulatory organs and makes new sounds for the pleasure they give him the activity of the speech producing organs is automatic, just as... that of the legs and arms is. A great num ber of sounds are produced which are not found in our language, some of them so complicated that we cannot produce them among these are the so-called vomitive sounds and the Cluck like sounds, found among some primitive people but not in our own language. Dr. Hall says (i It would be difficult even with Bell's phonic notation, or with a phonograph, to Classify the first vocalizations of an infant. Preyer thinks that all sounds necessary for future language are now produced, whereas Ament thinks the number of possible sounds is infinite, and that it is only with difficulty that the Child sinks from this wealth of sounds to the meagre level of his mother tongue.
