Just read this in weekly AWAD mail and thought some of you might miss it.....

Millions watch as Twin Babies Babble

Are they really having a 'conversation'?

Well it looked like it to me.

One comedian here translated the language, and
it was really funny.

HEY, it worked! Or almost. Candy asked me to move this thread to Miscellany, and it actually got here. However, a marker was supposed to have been left where it used to be with an explanation for the move, but it has disappeared completely from there. But the important part got done.

Edit: I saw that video the other day, and they certainly appear to be having a "conversation"--I think the one on the left is pointing out that he has socks on and his brother doesn't. I am not so sure the non-sock brother understood, though. I am not a baby-lover, but this really is cute.

One comedy site had the baby on the left telling the
other one to grow up and quit the baby talk.

For a linguistically informed discussion of this video, check out this Language Log thread.

It's amazing how much attention some things get.
