Does anyone know the history of developing sounds in languages without the use of an alphabet ?

Could a baby's garbled jibberish be considered developing sounds in languages
without the use of an alphabet?

I'd say it's a possibility and well worth studying although I'm not well versed in such work.

All infants babble regardless of whether they dwell in pre-literate or literate societies. They engage in such behaviors because this a stage of speech development.

Are you referring to the languages of preliterate societies?

I have no idea, but I sure am curious as to if it exists, especially in the modern world.

I suppose so...considering that I'm trying to imagine how people would have any capabilities with literacy if no alphabet first existed to support the literacy. Maybe I'm not thinking outside of the box enough though ?

Do all (or just some) infants on the autism spectrum automatically vocalize babble ?
