3V0742.01 Partly pause-deleted phrases (2/3/80)

Peggy produced several phrases today exhibiting compaction by pause
deletion – but such [is] not universal: Three examples:
“toys… love-em” (at toy box)
“Culdy…like-it.” (that mouse again)
“find-it”
The last has been common in Peggy’s recent speech and might be considered
a precursor of the development of compound structure.
