syntax and semantics

One of my daughters will often miss out the end part of a word or put two different words/names together eg. My sister lives in Loanhead and we go swimming in Bonnyrigg but my daughter insists they are both called Bonnyhead. Sometimes she will say mam fishened after dinner instead of I am finished.  is this a problem with syntax, or is it just auditory processing as she doesn't hear the words properly?  I am still slightly confused what syntax and semantics are even after reading the paper.
