Pronunciation

December 27th, 2010 by admin

Cillian is really doing well at stringing together words into sentences, and can really make himself understood.

We’ve had friends visiting who van also understand him. Sure, there are lots of quirky pronunciations, but he can be quite persistent (I wonder who he gets that from?!), so he gets his message across.

For the last few weeks, when he has finished something (like his dinner), or when he wants to have strop and has generally had enough, he tells us he is finished. Here, though, his pronunciation is faulty. Until a couple of days ago, he would actually say “minished”; so an “m” instead of an “f”.

Since then, however, the way he says this word quite diffently… And it is a lot funnier. Now his pronunciation sounds exactly like “penis”, which causes a lot of hilarity among us adults. Great fun, these toddlers. :)

One Response to “Pronunciation”

    C’est rigolo quand ils commencent à parler. Je me souviens qu’Anna disait Patenade pour Tapenade. J’ai écrit quelques mots ou tournures déformées pour m’en souvenir plus tard. Je n’ai pas tout écrit et je commence à le regretter parce que je ne m’en souviens déjà plus. Et pour Nils, je fais encore moins de choses, mais je vais faire l’effort de noter ses prononciations aussi. Pour l’instant, il ne dit encore rien. Il s’évertue à marcher. Les mots arriveront juste après…
