Just curious, but how clearly should a 20 month old be as he learns new words? My son says certain words very clearly. However, it seems like lately, as he is picking up a few more, he is getting lazy. He is now just saying the beginning sounds of some words.

Is this typical? When they give you an approximate amount of words a child "should" say by 2, do they mean clearly or just words that he consistently uses to refer to something?
