I don't allow Liseth in the kitchen when I'm cooking so she chats to me from the living room. After awhile she says "what are you doing , are you coming back in a minute ?". If I'm too long in her thinking, she starts shouting "come back" and after that it is "oi! oi! oi". Once I've returned to her she says " good girl " or ood irl because she can't say g.
She also cries like a baby especially if she sees one or a toddler.
She makes me laugh when she is in trouble, she quickly marches up and down on top of her cage saying " don't do that frequently in a sarcastic tone akin to a petulant teenager.
I have been trying to teach her to say scratch please but as soon as I say it she puts her head under my fingers :roll:
Forgot to add my favourite :lol: When I tell Liseth she is clever or pretty she always replies "I know".

Kanga my Chattering Lory shouts Richard every time my Daughter comes to visit.

My Daughter had a boyfriend called Richard 16 years ago. She fell out with him but not before my female Chattering Lory Tigger had added Richard to her vocabulary.
The next time she heard Tigger say Richard after she had fallen out with him my Daughter went ballistic like they do at 16 and made a big fuss about Tigger saying Richard. Of course this fixed Richard in Tigger's vocabulary.
I got Kanga a younger male Chattering Lory years later and he learnt to talk from Tigger including shouting Richard at my Daughter.
Sadly I lost Tigger a in 2014, but Kanga still shouts Richard at my Daughter along with a few expletives he has learnt from her when she visits and she is 32 now. :lol:

I love it when they come up with things that I have not heard before. Myrtle is doing that a lot. It is hard to believe but Rainbow still surprises me. He does not talk as much as before Myrtle. He probably thinks she makes enough noise for both of them.

My aunt was not impressed when I got Rainbow but the first week when my momma and I were out she got a crash course in what she could say. He was still living on the dining room table and she was in the farthest bedroom. She heard him yelling "HELP HURRY HURRY QUICK QUICK". When she got in the room she saw a strange cat under the table. Rainbow yelled 'CATCH HIM PUT HIM OUT" as my aunt ran around the table trying to get the cat to leave. She got a crash course in Rainbow.

When Kiri my husbands first grey learnt to talk she also went through a phase of nipping.
Andrew used to say to her. "Kiri naught. Kiri bite. Kiri go in cage"
He used to put her in her cage and she would turn her back on him as if sulking. Especially as Kuri our male grey was allowed to stay out. Kiri soon learnt this series of phrases.
One day she was on top of the living room door and came out with "Kiri naught. Kiri bite. Kiri go in cage"
Next thing she walked to the edge of the door and bit through the extension telephone line that went down the edge of the door frame. She then flew to her cage turned, her back on us and went into sulk mode.
At the point she bit through the cable there was an agonised yell from my son's room as his computer was connected to that phone line extension and she had cut him off literally.

They have so many emotions. Myrtle went 10 days after I scared her without talking to me.

And here is another funny amazon vocalization. Whenever I scold a parrot in the birdroom, Precie YNA starts screaming: "UUUUUUUUHHHH, TOO BAD, TOO BAD, TOO BAD - TOO BAD FOR YOU!" And, when I use a normal voice to talk to any of them (I always use a high pitch tone in a singsong and say pretty much the same things to them) she says: "What's that all about?"
