Hi, I just wanted to share this with you. My daughter has quite a severe speech disorder and today at school when I came to pick her up, she showed me a bucket with frog sporn in. All the children were chatting about it and my Lucy said "they will be frogs", which sounded like "wey will pe wuks" I then corrected her, as she's learning the "f" sound at the moment and we've been asked to correct her when she dosn't use that sound.
She then said in a nice load voice " wey will pe fucks", followed by "can I have a fuck in owr garden?" I could've died, I was trying so hard not to laugh out loud.
Then one little girl said "look at all those little dots" and my daughter said "yes, I know, that's fuck porn" (frog sporn obviously) blush
I wonder what the teacher would have made of that?
She dosn't know any rude words by the way, except wee-wee, pooh-pooh etc. She is a very prim and propper little girl which made it sound even funnier.

grin that's a good'un

I would have fallen about the place laughing. Poor DD and she's doing so well responding to your teaching.

My nephew (American) has a slight speech disorder and has a fog horn voice. When they were at the airport flying out to see us, he saw the aeroplane (Americans call them jets, not planes) they were going to get on and got very excited and started running round the airport shouting "big shet, big shet". My sister in law was mortified as everyone turned to look at the 2 year old who was shouting about large poos.......

My ds couldn't say F and used to say C in stead. It's amazing how many times he wanted to use the word Front! shock not quite what you expect from a then 3 year old.

Luckily it didn't last long.

My ds used to love saying the word 'clock' but didn't pronounce the 'l'.
Whilst visiting a school which we were considering for him, he insisted on pointing out every single clock in each classroom and saying 'cock' at the top of his voice. It certainly got a few giggles!

DS1 had a speech problems and had trouble with the 'c/k' sound. He would sometimes substitute 'p'. Slightly unfortunate when his keyworker at nursery was called Chris as that ended up as Piss.

Ds doesnt have a speech disordeer i dont think but does mispronounce words (he is 3y3m) and says 'little fucker' for little plugger from Roary teh Racing car and 'Fat cunt roller' for Fat controller. Is delightful!

My son has auditory processing disorder so he cant 'hear' words properly. He has to fill in the gaps himself.

He does this a lot with names. When he meets someone new I quite look forward to what version he will come up with.

Carrot - caroline
Dingdong - dyonne
Face - faith

etc.

He spent the day at a siblings club a few weeks ago. I asked the worker if he had been ok and understood everything etc. She said yep he has been fine. He then proceeded to drag me over to get his coat from the 'cabbage'. His version of cabin grin.

As for swearing blush I can usually tell who he has picked up a phrase or word from because he tends to say it exactly like that person. (he uses a lot of phrases from tv etc) so I cant duck the blame if he says a rude word in just the way I do blush

They are so funny, the problem is trying not to laugh in front of them. grin

My daughter went to the zoo once and there was a model of a crocodile with an alarm clock in it'sw mouth, if you press it, the crocodile makes a noise.
My daughter shouted out "yook mummy, he got a cock in he mouth". blush
It certainly got peoples attention. blush

A lot of students and professor's think that if you have speech disorders it is really bad and it should be fixed somehow. However there are different sides of it , there is also positive part about funny speech , ad it let the listeners relax and listen even more in such atmosphere. Moreover memory.ucsf.edu/brain/language/disorders gives other good reasons for it.
