Hi,
I used to lay on the sofa reading aloud with my son and gradually softening my voice. I'd pretend to get a word wrong and he'd pick me up on it. Then he'd get more confident and before long he was telling my husband what I'd done wrong. If I could make up a funny word all the better.
Hope this works for you too.
