It's a phonological process called consonant cluster reduction.

But just knowing what it's called hasn't helped me so far in trying to eliminate it from Dylan's speech.

Yesterday we were sitting on the front porch when a spider crawled by, and Dylan said:

"Mommy, it's a 'pider!"

"No Dylan, it's not a 'pider, it's a spider. Say 'ssssss'".

[laughing and slowly shaking his head] "Moooommmmmy, 'piders don't say 'sssss'...... 'nakes do!"

Well, he's right...snakes do say 'ssss' least he knows his animals sounds! Love that little stinker (or 'tinker, as Dylan would say) so much....

How DO you keep a straight face! He's hilarious!
