    dont use inappropriate words around your birds its that simple,keep teaching good words and he might forget the bad ones but it will taks a long time,good luck.....tim p.s. you have to think if you need to sell him for what ever reason people wont buy him because of the bad language.

    I had no idea that it would learn the word... I don't even use that word, but since he is in the living room and people sit, come and go there it makes me not surprised where it learned it... I definitely didn't teach him that word NEVER.
    I'll never sell my Africangrey :nonod:

    I would just use nice words around him and when he says them, give him treats. When he says the naughty words, do not give him attention such as laughing etc :) It's embarrassing yes but don't stress over it!
