I think my first exposure was to Ubby Dubby, on the north american
educational television program "Zoom". It's a simple insertion code -
putting an "ub" /Vb/ in front of each syllable nucleus:
Ubbi thubbink mubby fubbirst ubbexpubbosyubber wubbas tubboo
Ubbubbubby Dubbubbubby, ubbon thubbe nubborth ubbamubberubbicubban
ubbedjubbucubbashubbunubbal tubbelubbevubbizhubbin prubbogrubbam
It's awkward to type, but easy to speak. I became quite fluent. And
it translates readily into Bill Cosby's Dum-Donaldese by simply
replacing the /V/ with a preduplication of the following vowel:
Abband ibbit trabbanslaybates rebbedibbileeby ibbintubu Bibbill
Cobbosbeeby's Dubbum Dobbonabbaldeebese byby sibbimpleeby
reebyplaybacing theebee /VbV/ wibbith ubba preebedooblibbicaybashubbun
ubbuv theeby fobbolloboweebing vowbowel.
I don't know exactly how old I was. Perhaps 8 (31 years ago).
