what's the loveliest phonetic spelling of a word you've seen?

(184 Posts)

DS1 wrote SMUTIS on a shopping list. And TMUTOS.

Hulababy Sat 18-May-13 19:46:24

When DD was still little I remember this one: choobs smile

bobthebear Sat 18-May-13 19:46:37

What's SMUTIS? I've been sat here saying it over and over but cant get it!

I remember DD writing 'can we hav skubetee for tee plees' once grin

My dd has a friend whose dad is French and called Jean-Pierre.

One day she had reason to write his name down and it came out Xompier.

"Bulzi" - DD was away on a school trip and in her letter home was telling me about her first go at archery. grin

Loved 'acsidunt' when DD was little and wrote a note to me apologising for spilling a yoghurt (there may have been some shouting but 'acsidunt' made my hard old heart melt).

My 3yo confidently told me that CR spells car. I couldn't fault his logic. At the moment he's picking up some letters phonetically and others by their letter names, so CR it is!

"fit" for theatre. It doesn't make sense until you pronounce it with a south London accent which makes a "f" sound of "th".

my favourite phonetic word used to be jaraf, its recently changed to Misis A Misis B Misis C Misis D Misis E (dd has lots of teachers in her class....) I think this is how we should all spell Mrs, makes so much more sense!!!

Limelight Sun 19-May-13 00:47:33

When I was about 6 I wrote 'buffla' in a story. This is one of my DM and DF's favourite stories because it took them a little while to work out.

So take into account: (1) a broad Teesside accent which meant missing Ts; and (2) slightly dodgy hearing which meant that ends of words got missed. Also squint your eyes a little bit...

And then you get 'butterfly'!

My DM is slightly thrilled that my 2yo DD says 'bufflafly'. smile

Oh and my hearing got sorted the following year - adenoids out.

Jinsei Sun 19-May-13 00:59:22

Euphemia Sun 19-May-13 06:55:23

I need to get a P2 or P3 pupil's jotter and type an example for you to see whether you can hear the Scottish accent!

It's fabulous the way accents come out in the examples above!

My dd wrote in a thank you card to her daddy 'you are Hanson' for ages after I couldn't resist singing mmmmmbop at himwink

BiscuitMillionaire Sun 19-May-13 07:10:11

My DD wrote 'fack yoo' on our big whiteboard. I was a bit shock so I asked her what she meant - it was 'thank you'.

FaintlyMacabre Sun 19-May-13 07:16:57

These are all lovely. I love the way they have the confidence to have a go at writing words that officially they haven't learnt the correct spelling for. Makes their writing so expressive.

From DS3 when he was 5: "I hope my cat has 8 citterns. 4 boy citterns and 4 girl citterns".

Fortunately this hasn't come to pass, or we'd be asking the vet for a refund on the operation she had done.

BooksandaCuppa Sun 19-May-13 07:33:37

I love figuring out the accents too!

I don't have many examples from ds (now 12). He was such a good and early reader and a really comparatively late writer (and autistic which I believe is relevant to his auditory processing) that he didn't much use phonics to write - more variations of correct spellings.

He wrote 'sausag', 'daer', 'adveture' and 'lihgt' - things like that in maybe year 1. How things sounded never helped him, only how he knew they looked.

seeker Sun 19-May-13 07:39:22

My ds wrote Happy Birfday Efan in a card once.

We live in Kent. That's why I counsel against names with "th" in them!

AThingInYourLife Sun 19-May-13 08:05:54

Love this thread. smile

"DS1 (5) labelled a picture of two children fighting 'skwobl'."

That is really clever. Cute and a bit funny, but really well worked out.

My most recent example is Roamin for Roman which is a bit boring compared to penis for pennies grin.

But it reminded me of those houses called Dun Roamin people retire to.

DD1 is 5 and really getting into writing in her own, so looking forward to more of these.

Last year one of my year 2 children wrote a story about a 'rober' who climbed through a window and stole all the 'penis'. Unfortunately it wasn't a very good story and every other word seemed to be 'penis' lol.

AaDB Sun 19-May-13 12:33:06

I've had this note after ds 6 was a bit naughty this morning: 'Der Mrs Mum, form your spesul boy'. With a drawing of tears and a sunflower.
He has a different accent from the city we live in and I wondered how his teachers cope. We can read these no bother and helped me out with squidgy grin

Barbarashop Sun 19-May-13 12:37:47

My nephew once wrote out his Christmas list:
Inyaner dyoons figer
Pakit of hairy boos
We particularly loved the second one! grin

When DS was about 5, he regularly drew maps. One referenced places he knew of through home life. It had a route that included Jamayka and finished at Saarfend. When I pointed out that it was SOUTHend, his response was 'well that's how DSM says it!' grin

'Aie liv in saf Lunden.'
From DS.

'I lyk drincin war and pleyin wif the hamsta.'
I think 'war' translating as 'water' might tell you that he has a heavy accent.

And 'mummi coums frum Sweedin and daddi coums from Ruzshia.' I think he picked up some Polish from my DM with the zs.

And 'I lyk the boos.'
For bus.

From dd2 aged four.

Bteetoo was my favourite from DS. (potato) Sort of sounds like it should be said with an Irish accent, although we are not Irish.

DD once wrote me a list of household tasks she was prepared to undertake, with prices attached...very enterprising.

For 50p I could procure her services for 'hovering and pulping' (pulping is what you do to sofa cushions to make them not flat)

And for £1 she would 'solv ani promble'....very useful. If only she still offered this service

I will forever treasure the first piece of. proper writing DS brought home. It was about butterflies and other flying things and included the line "He moovs with his friends". It totally got me and I don't think I ever want him to get all his spellings right, not for a few more years anyway!

The DDs were playing upstairs when I was given a note that said 'amtss acuming. run qick evywu' They were playing Firefighters.

not exactly spelling but my DS learnt the alphabet song in nursery when he was 3, he was so pleased with himself.

He was singing

DS keeps his big hexbugs, and the controller for the RC spider, in a box that he has decorated to make it look like a little house and labelled in big red letters: 'Hexbug Hows. Ant, Spidu, Larvu, Cunt' (He ran out of room to write 'Cuntrola').

I've got a new one today: DS has written a story at school about a blue bug called Mistu Bloobug grin

cetl - kettle

redhappy Thu 23-May-13 21:10:12

DD s in reception and has just got interested in the idea she can write. I love to see her spellings! My favourite so far hrsis and cupud (horses and cupboard)

Berrington Thu 23-May-13 21:13:58

'the baker has no penis' . . . he also had no pennies left!

morethanpotatoprints Thu 23-May-13 21:41:28

egog - Hedgehog.

Animoolls and ahoondrid (one hundred). Yes, we live in the north!

I'm loving all the accents on this thread!

How about 'raped' for wrapped? shock grinDH did that one when he was about 5, copying out the Nativity story.

WileyRoadRunner Fri 24-May-13 14:42:46

My DD regularly uses "cunt" in place of can't blush

toomuchicecream Fri 24-May-13 20:31:45

I encourage my pupils to put a wiggly line under words they know they can't spell, rather than playing safe and only using words they think they know. A year 2 boy today had me thinking when I read walar.

Eventually from the context ("first the shoot appears and then the leaves then walar! The flower is grown..." or words to that effect). I've corrected the spelling to voila! And told my TA, who takes his phonics group, that she can explain it after half term....

Story writing with my Year 1 class...

"Wons a pony tum..."

Once upon a time...

StealthOfficialCrispTester Fri 24-May-13 20:44:12

Love once a pony tum grin
not a phonetic spelling but DS once handed me a "book" he'd made and written on it was "this is the end". Rather deep and depressing for a 5 yo, I was a little concerned...till I turned over and the other side said "this is the frunt"

I'm just doing some marking and "choolips" from one of my class made me smile

FriendlyLadybird Sat 25-May-13 10:20:31

Mewseum. For cats, maybe?

But I also liked DD's notice on her door when she was very young and really not at all advanced in terms of writing. She obviously couldn't work out how to manage 'Private' or 'No admittance' or even 'Keep out'. So we were just faced with '[DD] sez NO'.

sparkleyes Sun 26-May-13 22:48:23

My DD made me a card to say she loove me to bist!

I loove her to bist too !
