Evolution of the word “Yes”

By Elijah Granade, Aged 23 months

1. “Uhhh!” Accompanied by urgent pointing and repetition of “uhhh!” Can be used to indicate “yes”, “I want that”, or “that way”.

2. “I do!” Pronounced “I daow!” This one showed up when he was around 14 months or so. Usage: “Are you hungry? Do you want something to eat?” “I daow!”

3. “Oh sure!” Pronounced “oh sooor” and said in an excited voice. This is a very recent phenomenon. Usage: “Are you ready to go outside?” “Oh soooor!”

Now everyone can guess what the next variant will be!
