When we were living in Boston, one of our girls at age 2 learned the word "tonic" to mean that canned or bottled liquid refreshment. Then, while 3, she lived for a year in Wichita Falls, TX and picked up a good Texas drawl from the preschool locals. It was quite cute, at least to her parents, to hear her ask, "Ahh wahnt a tahnik." -- Jim
