Millie loves to say peek-a-birdie instead of peek-a-boo. And she oftern tells me that the puppy dog goes meow meow meow instead of the woof woof woof. She definitely knows the difference but does it deliberately cause she looks straight at me with I knowing glance. Just testing me I think.

Re: Raven is getting confused with words

Hahahaha! I love that Raven is taking verbal short cuts, it's absolutely hilarious! I can just imagine the back and forth conversation in my head too. Shiko definitely makes garblygoo when it comes to speaking. I honestly have no idea what he says sometimes... he'll fly onto my shoulder and stand up straight against my face saying something along the lines of "goodboywhatdoing-<car noise>-goodboygoodboygoodboyRRRR". Then shortly after he'll fly away. He makes zero sense sometimes. His current fascination is to yell "WEEEEEE!" at the top of his lungs, which always makes me fall over in laughter. Birds are great

Re: Raven is getting confused with words

George the YCA would mix up some of his words and phrases. Sometimes "Polly want a cracker" came out as "Polly wacker." "Pretty bird" he extended into "Pretty bird-ird" now and then. He'd also sometimes say "Want a parrot cracker" and "Pretty cracker."

Re: Raven is getting confused with words

That's funny. My mom has a 10 year old Princess of Wales parakeet, and when I first heard that he was a talker it surprised me, as I didn't think such a species would talk. He's pretty good at mimicking when he wants to, but he does a lot of that running words together as a long sentence that doesn't make sense. I love to hear his funny voice though.

One thing that always makes me laugh is Raven's definitions of the word "vegetable". One of the times he says it is when you give his fresh food dish. Sometimes he'll experiment saying it in different ways or real high pitched. It's hilarious. He also says "vegetable! vegetable!" when he means to say 'get away unless you want me to make you bloody!'

Re: Raven is getting confused with words

There is a lot going on in those bird brains! Don't know if we completely understand how they process language, but it endears them so greatly!

When Gabby was beginning to talk, he pronounced a "k" at the end of "bird." Sounded like 'birdk." Dropped the errant "k" after a while.

Raven is getting confused with words

When I brought my mother's cat to my house to Doctor his acbcess, Buddy started meowing out of the blue. They can repeat words and phrases,as in Buddy's case out of the blue. He doesn't like the cat getting attention,lol!

Re: Raven is getting confused with words

I say "Good boy" frequently, and Gonzo will say it, but now he's stuck on "Good buh" and he'll keep repeating it. I yell back, "No! Say it right!" ... "...Good buh."
