Through a study at Plymouth University, psychologists reveal that toddlers are more receptive to accents spoken regionally, like the ones spoken in nurseries and playgroups, even if it is very different from the accents in which family members communicate at home. While the researchers said that these results were expected, it is a good sign as far as preservation of linguistic diversity in the future generations is concerned.
