As I sit on my bed to ice my knee after doing my rehab exercises, occasionally I click on YouTube for some "instant entertainment." Yesterday, I checked out a video I hadn't watched for a long time and found that I'd missed a very interesting linguistics point. This is a video of baby twins communicating with one another. It's so cute, but what I find even more interesting is the inflections in their communication - certainly pointing out their burgeoning communication skills. Notice how they formulate questions and answers.
Reminded me of when my kids were learning to talk. We didn't make up 'baby-talk' words and phrases because we found that just listening to toddlers attempt to use the correct wordage and pronunciation is often much more amusing than 'baby-talk.' An example that comes to mind is when Spencer learned to wish somebody well after they'd sneezed, he offered, "God blush you!"
Do you have any cute examples of your kids learning to talk?
