In this issue of Acta Paediatrica, Christine Moon, Hugo Lagercrantz, and Patricia K. Kuhl report their findings in phoneme learning before birth (1). They demonstrate that the exposure to the voice of the mother (and possibly other people) in the native language of the mother has altered the processing of phonemes. Specifically, they show that newborn infants seem to perceive variants of phonemes differently depending on whether the phonemes belong to the mother's native language or not. ©2012 The Author(s)/Acta Paediatrica ©2012 Foundation Acta Paediatrica.
