This is a snippet from an article in my sister's local
newspaper. It's from an interview with a 4 y/o girl who
came up with the word "stardotty" (stjärnprickig) and won
2nd prize in a word inventing contest for kids.

Anyway. The fun part was this:

Interviewer: "I've heard you have a language of your own,
what's it called?"

Little girl: "Oalia. I talk to Nina (little sister, 10
months) in it.

Interviewer: "How many words are there in Oalia?"

Little girl: "20, no, 100."

Interviewer: "Can you say a word so I can hear what it
sounds like?"

Little girl: "No, I don't want to."

Bummer... Oh well. :)

I should probably try and look her up and introduce her
to this list when she gets old enough to read and write
English. :)
