A few days ago, I removed a few bricks that had been placed on top of the lawn for a while, and beneath there were plenty of centipedes, worms, spiders, ants and woodlice.
Léon was watching with great interest, and afterwards he went in to tell Phyllis:
– Mum, there were dyr under the stenene, and they looked like animals!
It so typical of a bilingual kid to know the same word in two languages (here “dyr” and “animals”), but not to equate them. Fully bilingual kids are normally crap at translating literally.
