Every typically developing child learns to talk, but children differ tremendously in how and when they do so. What predicts this variability? And which aspects of early language learning are consistent across the world’s languages and cultures? We use data from tens of thousands of children learning dozens of different languages to create a data-driven picture of what varies and what is more universal in children's early language.
