Do you remember the cute things your children said when they were little and trying to develop a vocabulary?
Many times the way they pronounce those words in no way resembles the object they are trying to describe. Then again, sometimes their words have a certain ring to the real thing but it is far from being correct.
Our children had certain words for specific things and I still remember them. Annie called potato chips “pee-pips” and said “kee-cat” for kitty cat. Buffy substituted “soo-cool” for school and “onn cot” for John Scott until she was about 4 years old.
