Talk to her with the vocabulary that you want her to speak with. Make sure you arent using any baby talk. If she is capable of saying the words, dont respond to her until she says the words the proper way. I never used any baby talk with any of my kids, even when they were first born. My middle child used to try using baby talk to get attention. I told her she has a better chance of getting what she wants if she talks like a big girl. I would tell her Mommy cant understand baby words.

If its her ears, then get her into an audiologist immediately. Thats a very serious thing. My oldest is deaf in one ear. We have worked hard at his vocabulary and he has a hearing aid. It makes a big difference.

Children learn from example, you don't seem to have your English in check either, maybe that's why.
