tal, our almost 3-years-old is at an odd age in her language development.
her Hebrew is almost good, her English non-existent
she has invented some words that make so much sense, it is remarkable they have not been used before.
- a combination of work and study -לומד+ עובד = לובד
she means bett’s house. פה אבא לובד
הנוער העובד והלומד? לא עוד
- good bye and good night in one word – בילה טוב
that’s when she really means to go to sleep, not your simple good evening
- many – הרמונים root: המון
How many do you want?
makes you want to invent words yourself. can i think that simply?
