A sample of Tiki vocabulary

I'm still working on a Tiki web page, but I haven't got very far yet. I
have to go over each word and try to figure out where I got it from, and
come up with a reasonable French gloss for it. So far I've only got as
far as the F's in the English section. In the meantime, I thought some
of you might be interested in seeing a sample of the Tiki vocabulary.
For each word, I've listed its source, along with translations in French
and English. Dutch and Japanese do appear to be the main sources of Tiki
vocabulary, although there are more French words than I remembered, and
a few from miscellaneous sources. I may or may not keep some of the more
exotic words.
