I have a 16 month old that isn't really saying any words. We have worked with her since 9 months our nanny does the same.

Its really a process that each child goes through differently. Just keep saying words and not use the baby talk some people love to use. As long as she seems to understand basic things you ask of her and tell her its okay. Some kids learn early and others later. It just depends on the child. She should be at least doing things that sound like mama, dada, and other simple things. The bigger, harder words will come with time but she will understand more of what is said than she can say it. A child does not come with a ready vocabulary for anything. They learn by listening to the adults and other kids in their families and lives.
