Vocabulary development is a process by which people acquire words. Babbling moves towards meaningful speech, as infants grow and produce their first words around the age of 1 year.
Pictures in books support 2 memory techniques - association and visualisation. Associating an image with a word helps a user learn words in a more effective way. Memory plays an important role in vocabulary development.
