Intended insult gone awry

First-grade child, in the car: Mom!
Me: What?
Child: Dad!
John: What?
Child: Ha-ha, what's a nerd word!
John: No, why's a nerd word.
Me: Non-linear's a nerd word.
John: Ontological's a nerd word.
Me: DEontological's a nerd word. Epigenetic's a nerd word. Etiology's a nerd word.
John: We're very proud of our nerd words, son.
Me: Nerd words? Now you're speaking my language.
