The author, in this article, shares opinion about her five year daughter's initial talking behavior. Her child interjected clicks at the ends of some of her sentences. The clicks were the product of sliding her tongue from the front to the back of her palate, then releasing the suctioned air as she pulled her tongue down sharply. What surprised the author most was to find her daughter's behavior to imitate her. However, the author concludes that a child has similar features of its parents either in one way or other way.
