My son has a unique Samoan dialect of his own devising. I'm reluctant to correct him when he uses his slang version of Samoan because it's just too cute. I hear it so often that I am guilty of using it too, which just makes him think that his version of the language is more correct than mine. He has "corrected" me on more than one occasion!
