Languages are quite complicated, even for adults, which is why kids are constantly distorting words and coming up with new ones when they have no idea what a thing is called. When you’re talking, spontaneity is key, so if you pause for a long time to think about what you want to say, things will get awkward really fast.
Kids know that too, which is why they would rather invent their own unique words than try to remember the actual term for a specific thing. The people in the Tweets below managed to hear some of the funniest made-up terms come out of a kid’s mouth.
1. We should all start calling them that
2. Perfect, just perfect
3. She’s talking about Vultures
4. That’s a better name for it
6. An unpleasant song
