Y4 - 224/365: Yow Cor Spake Propa
Yep, you can tell I'm teaching in the Black County today. Most children anywhere write how they speak so everything is spelled phonetically. Here the child was referring to the volume of something being 'loud' but when they say the word, they actually say it 'lowed' (or louw-ed).
I also find it funny that 'grandma' is 'grandmar,' because...you have it...the kids ACTUALLY say it that way.
Interesting, this whole dialect/language/pronounciation thing.
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
