TOCTEP

In Russian, the word that looks like TOCTEP is said and means "toaster." It's in a board book we own.

Today C4 sounded it out in English. T-oh-ck-t-ee-p. Doesn't make sense in English, but he READ it in English!

In the film The Terminal, one of the few moments which really amused me is when Tom Hanks potential romantic interest asks him, "Why does your belt buckle say B H?" He sticks out his hand and says "Viktor Navorsky." I think I only liked it because I figure most people wouldn't get it.

Oh, how I love a good Pestopah!

That's great, at least you know your son is sounding things out instead of just recognizing words.
