The English Language
Why does the English language have so many words that have two meanings. Poor Amber is trying to learn new things and then gets confused when there is more than one meaning for a word. For example the other day she was pointing out parts on a cow/bull that she has. She couldn't figure out why the cow had two sets of ears. I then pointed to the horns and said, "these are the cows horns." Her response was, "honk honk." It was really cute and it made me laugh! This is just one example - I could go on and on. Oh well, I don't think there is much I can do about it. I don't think changing the name of horn to something else would help her. I guess we will have to practice that one.
