The words just keep flowing
out of Lyli and Scarleht as their ability to mimic noises improves exponentially every few days. Today's new or newly enunciated words: Diapie, yodel, Rob(Rah), Uncle(Unck), Sock (zzjah), hi (Hieeeee!), Moon (Mao), Raw (as in foods). I've started perusing How Language Comes to Children by Benedicte de Boysson-Bardies who is a director of research in the Experimental Psychology Laboratory at the Centre Nationale de la Recherche Scientifique in Paris, France. Wish I had time to give it a solid read, sigh. For a change of pace I've picked up Andre Gide's The Immoralist and am still slowly plowing through A Book of Readings for Men Against Sexism published by those pioneers at Times Change Press back in 1977.
