According to previous researches, toddlers often refer to actions rather than objects and actions are often different each time a child sees them.

The research carried out by the University of Liverpool gives an insight into how can toddlers learn verbs.

The study reveals that showing toddlers’ similar but not identical actions can actually help them understand what a particular verb refers to.

“The knowledge of how children start to learn language is important to human understanding of how they progress throughout preschool and school years,” a leading news agency quoted developmental psychologist, Dr Katherine Twomey as saying.

The research was published in the British Journal of Developmental Psychology by The British Psychological Society.
