Do you like BABY-TALK?

I'm not talking about talking baby-talk to a BABY. I'm talking about people who talk baby-talk to a spouse or other adult, especially in public.

Men, what do you think when a woman talks to you this way?

Women, if you'll admit that a man talks to you this way, what do you think of it?

What do you think when you hear it from others?

    I'm an adult so why should I talk like a baby unless I'm really talking to one i.e. my baby rabbit.

    I only use a form of baby-talk, and that is towards animals.
    It is fact that animals respond to a higher pitch in voice better than to that of a person's normal voice.

    When an adult talks that way to me, I just don't take them seriously, I mean what the heck? I didn't even talk that way to my kids, and when they were toddlers, they were easy to understand, and spoke clearly and were easily understood by everyone. I think parents do their kids a disservice by talking "baby talk" to their infants...they think that is how you are supposed to talk, as for adults...I have no clue as to why someone would find it endearing.

    My previous manager would baby talk e.g. Why can't I have, I don't understand, but I want it that way. The other colleague used to mother her and my manager loved it. I ended up going off for 3 months with stress. I now work with proper adults who speak properly to each other and its lovely. I think its not normal to speak baby talk especially for an office manager.

    I like it sometimes...but not all the time. It would get too annoying.

    It always makes me think that there was some damage done to that particular person at a young age. I took psychology and learned that most people who use baby talk suffered severe trauma when they were very young (usually molestation). That is why so many strippers/porn stars use baby talk. or (ahem) Britney Spears, Anna Nicole.

    Oh my gosh, is that true? I always wondered why someone would think that was okay, or even attractive.

    The linguistic term for 'baby talk' is called Motherese.

    I think it's friggin hilarious (in an OMG I'm so glad I'm not you sort of way) to hear someone else do it, but if my husband ever did it to me I'd know he'd gone nuts.

    So why do you think some men put up with it? If it was your wife would you tell her to stop?

    That's different. They are your babies, right? I'm talking about talking that way to adults, spouses, significant others.

    Adults, usually not, even at work my clients may have a cognitive level of 3 year old, some 10 years old, but I never baby talk to them. My husband if it's in kidding, joking way, but rarely.
