I'm a Amy!

Amy doesn't use "a" or "an" depending on the following word; instead, she uses "a" all the time, even if the next word starts with a vowel sound.

In other news, she's started using "one" in German in some cases where it would be used in English, for example, "Ich möchte die eine mit der Ente" = I want the one with the duck (normally just "Ich möchte die mit der Ente"). Mostly, this seems to be where the article or demonstrative is used; she doesn't seem to use it after adjectives (e.g. "I want the blue one" but "Ich möchte den blauen"; I don't think I've heard *"Ich möchte den blauen einen" from her).
