Dot writes: these are the words Hugh says. He was twenty-one months old yesterday. He has learnt almost all of these since we moved house.
milk (pronounced ‘miw’)
woof-woof (vff-vff) = dog
miaow = cat
moo = cow or similar
quack-quack (cok cok) = duck
all gone (go-go)
what’s this? (wossdis?)
He has also said all of the following at least once:
blue-blue = blueberries
ta-ta [nursery word for giving or receiving an object]
And he likes to make the following expressive noises:
Notice the importance in his life of 1) food and 2) anything with an engine and wheels.
P.S. You are not allowed to comment saying how your fourteen-month-old talks better than Hugh. Nor, if you know him, are you allowed to say anything rude about his pronunciation! He has improved immensely. And I understand him – well, actually I don’t, but I know that ‘blln’ means ‘balloon’…
