My twins used to do that. And yes, it was normally just one sound repeated over and over, with plenty of giggles and laughs interspersed.

Sometimes I think I miss those days. [Smile] Then I remember how much I spent on diapers and I wise up. [Smile]

>Really they know zero words.

If that were the case I'd expect more variations in types of sounds. I mean, they've got to be able to pronounce more than one consonant, at least by accident on occasion. I think they found one word that works for them and they like it so much they just don't see a need for anything else.

When I was little, like in kindergarten, I guess, and just learning to write, I saw my mother writing in cursive. I figured that looked fairly easy, so I took a pen and scrawled up and down. That's called modeling behavior, and it's what these kids are doing.

Bingo.

That's why I say they don't know any words -- they don't have any notion of sounds having meaning. They don't know what words ARE.

And they actually used two consonant sounds, one with much higher frequency than the other. They were "d" and "m". Those are the two consonants babies of every culture learn first (for physiological reasons), and thus the reason "mommy" and "daddy" almost always feature those sounds, in many languages.

Do "mommy" and "daddy" tend to always get the same consonants associated with them?

Often.

When baby names for mother and father don't feature "m" and "d", they generally feature the also-early "b" and "p". There's a great paper somewhere online analyzing not only the incidence of these sounds in baby names for parents (and grandparents), but the change from formal parent names to informal ones over time in several languages.

I can't find it now, to my annoyance.

Getting us back on track here, has anyone linked yet to what is being labeled as the worst song ever?

And the always amazing Stephen Colbert doing a cover of it with the Roots and Jimmy Fallon.

I feel like I want to list them all, but it'd get repetitive and you can probably find others. The neatest one I've found so far is the story of Wind and Mr. Ug. (I ended up posting the one I did because of the "These snakes can't talk to each other because this one speaks Parseltongue and this one speaks Python" line.

I almost gave her her own thread.

This is where I get all high and mighty and talk about how I went to this festival back when there were only, like, 500 people in attendance and the temple was still under construction. I'M BETTER THAN YOU!! [Taunt]

With the talk in the news lately of that little boy in the ad wearing nail polish, I thought about this condom commercial I saw a long time ago.

A slow motion landslide on a road I've been on often (for vacation). It's pretty neat looking, and you get a sense of the time scale in the second half of the video when workers come out and walk around on it.
