SpanTaLish - A new Language
Had done a post in my daughter's Tamlish - her Tamil mixed with English...
She has now created SpanTaLish (Spanish, tamil and english) thanks to Dora the Explorer programs.
Got a interactive DVD from the Library the other day where Dora teaches kids to say "Circulo" and "Triangulo" for Circle and Triangle.
When Dora asked her later to say "Map" to summon a map to find directions my daughter goes :
"Mapulo Dora "
I just burst out laughing.
Her current linguisic concept is very simple :
English -> Tamil you add "uu"
English -> Spanish you add "ulo"
Today she also coined some new relationships after watching Barney's Grand father, grand mother episode. She looked at a family photo and pointed out :
grand sister and
GO GRAND BABY !!
