Language Explosion

Though he still sometimes sounds like a Dadaist poet, Conrad has mostly moved from babble and single-word utterances to two-word sentences that make sense in context, with occasional forays as long as seven words. He's collected enough nouns that I no longer keep track of how many words he knows.

The weird thing is how many sentences he can make with his tiny repertoire of only five verbs:

Want
Go
Get
Have
Bite
