38. Parentese - How Moms and Dad speak to their Toddlers

RoPeCast has been all about speaking ever since it saw the light of day about 2 two years ago. Two-year-old children are different, of course, which is why mothers use baby talk to communicate with their toddlers instead of complicated Standard English.

"Mooly Cow Rhyme" Here you can read the "Mooly Cow Rhyme" which was mentioned in the Episode. The original title is "The Cow-Boy's Song" and it was written by Anna Maria Wells.
