pine apple !!!!!apple????apple!!!!!!pineapple????

what is the difference between apple and pine apple???apple is red in colour,specific shape......etc..pineapple yellow...,with small scales..,!!but both are fruits ,both taste sweet(conditions applied)

ok now tell me the difference between the word "apple" and 'pine apple".only difference is the pine and if u remove tat its apple.....
y i asked u all these ...becoz today my autistic child made me aware of this difference in the word apple and pine apple.....u may wonder how???very intersting incident
she is monu with her parents (both of them are doctors).she came to mysore to attend therapy.....Like any other educated parents who has world in their finger tips,they have learned a lot about this wonderful disorder(i shld never call it a disorder rather its a condition) "autism".
she s really a sweet child n i would say she s having autistic spectrum disorder.....
ist day of therapy:parents with their child....i called her name ..she didnt respond...i snatched her hand and tried seeking her attention towards me......
father:she ll not attend becoz she s in her own world
mum:ya its difficult to bring her from "HER OWN WORLD".u know na autistic have this specific character....
i understood tat they have internet accesss....nywys i called her from her own world ignoring the parents comments.......

i struggled in the next sessions to bring her mother from the internet informations to her childs reality.....

months passed.....nw monu is somewhat a smart girl who developed from her previous level....mainly becoz of her mothers effort......

so abt the story of apple...tat was the first fruit she learned....i taught her apple...she was pretty consistent with tat...even u draw arough fig she could make out apple.....

but suddenly one day she started labelling apple as pine apple....
i wondered "pine apple"hw she learned pine apple"
mothers efforts were pouring water on mine...
she wanted her child to learn rather repeat as many words as possible...
i told her give monu time...but she dont have .......

mama is depressed,child started beating mother for correcting her as if she is asking her
"what is this ?any ways "apple" is there in pine apple then y apple alone.......
mamma is angry monu.....mummy started shouting ...to save the chld didi(its me)started working to change apple again to apple...showed her the difference.....
asked mummy to show real objects
mummy's explanation:oh noo!!she s under megavitamin therapy ...so no fruits to monu

ok lets WORK with the picture..
mummy:dont worry i m sure monu will surely cum out from pine apple


after may be 2 days....(i thk mama scolded her n threatened her for saying apple as pine apple)child came....
didi started routine activities...in between introduced fruits
mummy happily....u know she s nw again saying apple as apple itself....
didi is also happy....bt let us check ........sumne

what is this monu ....??this is..........
child:apple....
ohh!!!!very gud very gud(clapped)

ok then what is this....showing pic of pine apple.....
this is........................................
wat happened her face looking confused.......
she forgot the name....
mummy screamed
what is this?say!!!!!!!!!!!!

child:"APPLE"
APPLE!!!!
CHILD again THIS IS "APPLE"

we both were sat with our hands on head...........
mama commented "stupid girl"

Actually who is stupid???
she might be thnkg its we who cant tolerate the addition of words or omission of words>>>>>>>>


who is having problem here.....wat is happening in childs mind??
my thought process is not enough to peep into her mind....

any idea????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
