What counts as putting words together?

Do phrases like I love you, thank you, and aw man count, or does it have to be them using two or more words they know to say something? Thanks for any input.

  • My daughter mixes sign language (of a sort) with garbled sounds. She also seems to turn everything into a variation of DADA. She's only 13 months, though.

  • Not really since they hear these as one long sound and don't pull them apart to use the individual words in other phrases.

    Using two seperate words together is what you are looking for:
    More cookies
    More milk
    baby up (life me up)
    more please
    thank you mommy

  • if the sentence means one thing, like over there, it is one thought. if it represents two, it is a sign of further language. my 20 month old signs over 50 signs and has over 5000 WORDS! same as a five year old. she tells me things like, "i eat it all gone mommy."
