DD1 (2 years) is obsessed with the 'desshoppoh' that was in our house a few days ago.

DD pronounces it Ambilly-ance.

I'm not correcting her because - well - it's cute cool.gif

DS1 (6) still says 'rhinerocerus' instead of rhinocerus, adding in the extra syllable. So cute.

DD (3.5) struggles to pronounce a lot of words, but I never realise how many until she is talking to someone else and I have to translate!

The weirdest is caught-er for water.

DD (2 y/o) loves her "boooobies" - BLUEBERRIES! Very amusing. She is also obsessed with finding the "Teetle" (turtle) in one of her books.

My eldest used to say "harverstoinkers" for harvesters (this was when Cars movie just came out- hence why he knew what a harverstoinker was!)

Other random words they've mis pronounced over the years
Flashmarlows (marshmallows)
shlablets (tablets)
Goils (girls- said in a 1920 gangster accent)
achen-noch (octonauts)

Similarly, my DS3 (4) asks for "Slimy" sandwiches.

He also regularly requests Spaghetti Bolabonaise

and DS1 said Hoat Cangers for the longest time original.gif

DS's pronunciation of words is excellent, however until recently he would say 'marshmashow' for marshmallow. We would always correct, but it came out as 'marshmashow', then one day he just got it right and we don't hear 'marshmashow' anymore.

I remember the old Imperial Leather ads from the 70s, when they would say, 'Simon, Tahiti looks nice', I couldn't get Tahiti right, I used to say Tarkiti.

DD1:

Asks frequently for cuggles (cuddles)
Loves tato
Wants to ride an errphant on our holiday

But the best- she can't say either Elmo or Nemo- they are both Emo hahaha. So when she says Emo you have to work out if she means Elmo or Nemo. Can be pretty funny when you're out and about and she yells out "Look mummy Emo Emo!"

Edited to add there were heaps more, and we used to correct her, but now that she is 3 and speaking much more clearly, we've not bothered to correct these last few words. We find them cute and I love getting my bedtime cuggles original.gif

DD1 called yellow lodo . She still calls magazines "mazagines" which is so subtle nobody usually notices but I hear it every time and smile on the inside. She is 9 going on 14 and it makes me feel like she is still my baby happy.gif
With DD2 it's the awful tower in Paris and for ages she couldn't say the s sound if it was followed by a hard consonant (p,m, c etc) so spoon was foon and smacked was facked. The latter could be rather embarrassing when yelled by a three year old. "Mum, gaga just facked me" would have raised eyebrows all over the place.......

#25 boopyscreet

Posted 02 February 2013 - 06:47 PM

When DD1 was learning to say her name she would say "Doola" followed by TAA DAA!!

She is also obsessed with Tinkerbell but when the obsession started she called her "Typical" original.gif . DH and I were in hysterics every time she said it.

Other than those two she is very exact with her speech though.
