Mami sagt...

Amy's starting to say "Mummy sag' German word; Daddy sag' English word (sag' < German sagt "says").

The times I've heard recently were statements of fact; however, I can imagine that she might use similar constructions in the future to (a) confirm that she has the correct E/G word for a corresponding G/E word and to (b) inquire about the correct E/G word for a corresponding G/E word.
