Funny Way With Words
Posted April 5, 2007on:
One day 3-year old Jake was excitedly telling us about some tv feature about the Sinulog (Feast of the Sto Nino in Cebu).
“Pa, pa, Jacob watch ‘SiHulog’… tv…”, he chattered away.
“Really? When did Jacob watch “SiHulog” on tv?”, my hubby asked.
“Jacob watch ‘SiHulog’ yesternight”, Jake proudly replied with a big toothy smile.
This morning, Jake was playing with my office laptop. The game was Warcraft. Matt, my 13 year-old son, was trying to help him out.
I didn’t realize, until today, that 3 year old Jake could already string words to form a coherent grammatically correct sentence, completely in English.
“How do I find the castle?”, he asked Matt.
Only, he mispronounced the last word as “cas-ol”.
