Theorists on psycholinguistics claim that children grow their linguistic competency through imitation toward surroundings. Besides, children have innate ability to cope with languages of the adults surrounding them. However, it turns out that what they utter sound different from what the adults should expect to hear. For example, instead of saying, “kupu-kupu”, a child says “pu-pu.” Another example is for the word “makan”. A child says “aan” or “mam.” These two examples illustrate how a child produces sounds from their oral instruments. Children are so fascinating, right?
