Costa Rica Word List

As I mentioned before, Joris's vocabulary has greatly increased in the last couple of weeks. Below is the list. It includes some words that he definitely would not have gained had we not traveled to Costa Rica, and will be of limited usage back home (Cactus, for example). English is definitely dominating the list:

Dutch

Bij (Bee - Joris uses it for every bug he sees, and there are many here)
Mier (Ant)


English

Bye
I know
Home
Pineapple
Big
More
Animal(s)
Cactus
Nice

Either (same in either language or undetermined still)

Obaba (Obama)
Appel/apple
Baby
Milk / melk (muh)
Coco (the name of a nearby beach)
Hacko (clock, watch)
Fish (Ha-psh)

Sounds:
wind
ocean
birds
