Dad speaks only Klingon to child for three years
Alright, I understand people love Star Trek. Heck, I even have a Trekkie brother who, despite a slight Spock obsession, I love dearly, but this story is just ridiculous.
A father in Minnesota spoke only Klingon to his son for the first three years of the child’s life. D’Armond Speers, who holds a PhD in computational linguistics, defended his child’s dorky upbringing, telling the Minnesota Daily, “I was interested in the question of whether my son, going through his first language acquisition process, would acquire it like any human language. He was definitely starting to learn it.”
Hmm, does this kid need Child Protective Services or a spot on toddler Jeopardy?
All the best Star Trek stuff that hopefully you won’t use on your innocent children.Posted by Annie Colbert
