Hello! First time poster here. Glad I found this site; I've read Carol Bowman's book and found it fascinating! Anyway, this post refers to when my now 6-year-old daughter was about 3 1/2. We were given a double bed that had been in my husband's family. Shortly after that she would gather up several of her stuffed toys and dolls and say she was taking them to the "common" - the double bed was the "common". I know that the word "common" has several meanings, one of which is a space of land for public use. It seemed to me that that was how she was using the word, but I have no idea how SHE would have known that. And I swear, for a short while there while she was playing that game, she would speak in what sounded like a rather clipped English accent. Any comments on this anyone?
