Announcement

In this article, we will share a Japanese word list that are or may sound childish when spoken by adults. Usually children learn these variations, simplifications or attempts to say a certain word.

The fact that the word is considered childish, does not mean that adults can speak it. In fact many of the words in this article are also spoken by adults, they just convey the idea of being a bit childish.

Other words that will not be listed and are usually part of a children's vocabulary, are onomatopoeia. I hope you like the word list in this article. We appreciate comments and shares. xD
