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!

"Dear Nan and Grandad" (so far so good) "sangck you for the swiming chrongcks"

This will out me if anyone who knows me is on here but my Y1 DS3 is utterly obsessed with his 'ovahed bjecta'

They were describing textures.

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

Pootlingalong Sat 18-May-13 20:02:19

Works best in DS's Geordie accent, love it
