I thought I noticed this a week or two ago, but again today Robert, from Harry's class, was clearly mimicking Harry words and intonation. When it happened that first time, when I could have sworn he said something like "it was just.." with the same arcing tone as Harry, I asked his teacher. She bluntly said that they had very different speech. Well, that's true, of course. Today, Robert was more noticeably, and more directly, repeating Harry's words while they played with the same toy. It's not surprising really, Harry is a role model, particularly when it comes to speech.
