3V0630.01 [gotcha]: verbal accompaniment of micro-script.

Peggy sat in my lap as I warmed me toes before the fire. At her request,
the toy Scotty was in her lap. She remarked [fire… hot], repeating our
frequent warning to her. I said “toes warm” and taking her legs, held
up her toes parallel to mine. The toy slipped between her legs, which
she closed on it saying [gotcha]…She laughed, pulled the toy dog out
and replaced it with another [gotcha]. this was done several times.


3V0632.01 [/teh/boin/?]: speculation about remote activity-telephone
[sae/vi]=sorry after poking with a pen. 10/16/79

Upstairs with Peggy when the telephone rang. I went downstairs,
answered it, and returned to Peggy upstairs after a short conversation.
She looked at me and commented /teh/boin/, i.e. “telephone.”

Peggy poked me with a pen. I said “Ouch!” and she replied /sah/vi/
(sorry). Gretchen.


30V633.01 Spontaneous identification of toy whirling-disk as a fan ? 10/17/79

Pointing to a part of her crib toy, a circular multi-colored piece that
spins in either direction when you twirl the knob in the middle, Peggy
identified it (without being asked) as a /faen/.

Peggy sometimes sucks on her middle fingers until they are literally
dripping. However, when I took her (dry) hand and barely nibbled the
tip of one finger, she withdrew with the comment [wet]. Gretchen.


3V0636.01 /cup…au.ehl/: adjective < further specification of idiom "owl-cup"; idiom degenerates and is reconstructed from more successfully competitive /kup/ in pre-standard order MAJOR EXAMPLE

Pointing to my own coffee cup, Peggy remarked /kuhp/, then after a
pause said /au ehl/ (owl). I have always identified this cup for Peggy as
my owl cup, and pointed out the picture on both sides. Gretchen.
