How to talk like a 1,5-year-old

  1. Alas! 
  2. Anna! 
  3. Avaa! 
  4. Istu! 
  5. Joo
  6. Ka! (A short form of kato which is a spoken language form of katso.)
  7. Kakka
  8. Kakku
  9. Kiitos! 
  10. Kenkä 
  11. Loppu
  12. Moi moi!
  13. Nam!
  14. Nenä
  15. Noin! 
  16. Papu 
  17. Pois! 
  18. Rikki (or ikki. It takes a while to learn the Finnish r.)
  19. Tuu!
  20. Vauva
