Nee naw

The other morning, an emergency vehicle with siren blaring passed our house.

Kitty rushed into the room shouting, “Nee naw!”

“What was it Katie?” I asked.

“Nee naw!”

My attempts to ‘model’ the ‘correct’ term, ambulance, were forcefully rejected.

“NO! Nee naw!”

She’s about two years and nine months old. You might like to consider what’s going on with her language use there (especially the Y13’s doing Child Language Acquisition (CLA).
