Both of these samples come from the speech of a 10-year-old girl. In the first, she is pretending to speak on the telephone to a new male teacher in her school and is asking to borrow an eraser from him. In the second, she is pretending to talk to the 3-year-old sister of a friend and is asking the little girl to return a book she took without asking.
