Familects - family dialects

Many of us have a private language that is only known in our home life. Perhaps you have a nickname from a parent or share an old joke or a shared reference to a song.

Also known as familects, these invented words, pet names, in-jokes, and personal memes emerge from spending time together in close quarters. Listening to recordings of other families can feel like being immersed in a different world.
