3V0545.02 /va/va’/ : 07/21/79;

Today (Saturday) Miriam got an allergy shot. Peggy came along for the
ride. When we returned to our car, a station wagon with a large white
dog (Samoyed?) had parked next to us. I pointed the animal out – “See
Peggy, see the nice dog.” Peggy looked and replied /va/va’/. The dog
had not made a sound, and Peggy clearly used the word to refer to the
animal itself, or “the animal that barks”. Gretchen.
