Kids’ figure of speech March 1, 2007

Posted by Zara's Mama in language, Zara.

Besides Kunci Farting, here are some of the other words that Zara uses to replace words she’s not familiar with:

Sauce –> Horse as in Soya Horse; Tomato Horse; Chilli Horse(this has been going on for a while, and we still can’t make her say ‘sauce’)
Remote Countrol –> Vomit Control
Scab –> Raisin Thingy. i.e. while trying to scratch off the scab from my knee she said “Mummy, I scratch off your raisin thingy from your leg. The mosquito bite there.”

The other day, a 4 year old from our neighbour pointed to Zara and told her mum this when we walked past her house, “Mummy, the little girl looks like (she) have(has) spiders on her eyes. The eyes got long long hair one.” She actually meant Zara’s dark long lashes.
