What are words for?

The best little girl in the history of little girls is becoming much more communicative now that she has a few back teeth. She picks up new words and new ideas everyday, and it's astonishing (and a little scary) to see what she learns from us.

Words that Yoyo can say include:

Dog!
No!
Shoes
Cheese
Juice
(note: "shoes" "cheese" and "juice" all sound the same - context is important here)
Nose
Water (sort of)
Yeah
Bye Bye
Daddy
Mama
Baby
Book
Timmy (her doll)
Her name (although it comes out "Roro")

It is probably only a matter of days before she'll be telling us "Oh, mummy & daddy - I had an amazing day at daycare today! The staff were leading us through yet another banal rendition of "Isty Bitsy Spider", when my colleague, Angus, vomited all over himself. I was quite aghast, and politely averted my attention, but the other children were most vocal in their disapproval of his predicament, and it really caused quite a stir....".
