The study was conducted by researchers at University of Liverpool who found that toddlers can better understand verbs when they are shown actions that are similar but not identical.

Developmental psychologist, Dr Katherine Twomey said that understanding how children start to learn language is important if one has to know how they progress throughout preschool and school years.

"Knowledge of how children start to learn language is important to our understanding of how they progress throughout preschool and school years. This is the first study to indicate that showing toddlers similar but, importantly, not identical actions actually helped them understand what a verb refers to, instead of confusing them as you might expect", Dr Twomey said
