WHAT DOES JABBERING MEAN IN ENGLISH?

jabbering

Babbling

Babbling is a stage in child development and a state in language acquisition, during which an infant appears to be experimenting with uttering sounds of language, but not yet producing any recognizable words. Babbling begins shortly after birth and progresses through several stages as the infant's repertoire expands and vocalizations become more speech-like. Infants begin to produce recognizable words usually around 12 months, though babbling may continue for some time afterward.
