First of all, it shows how young and naive Scout really is. Secondly, the ease with which she uses the N-word shows us the regularity with which the word was used; it was commonplace, and unfortunately people accepted this derogatory comment as nothing out of the ordinary (in certain circles). Lastly, we see that Scout listens to the conversations of the people around her (adults) and repeats what she hears. In essence; it shows how innocent and naive she is........ as you're reading along you'll find her innocence is coming to an end.
