Asa H vocabulary growth

After the work described in my blogs of 1 Oct. and 5 Nov. 2015 the next most logical step might be to try to teach Asa H the 1000-3000 most commonly used words in english.  Besides making it easier for Asa to communicate with humans, and learn from humans, a larger vocabulary means you know more concepts and can make finer distinctions between the patterns you observe.

I have never been good at languages.  I may not be the best person to do this work.

When presented with unrestricted real world input Asa has always learned some concepts that I have been unable to name (i.e.,attach human labels to).  Humans may also have such unnamed concepts in their heads.  These could be what is active when we have a hunch or experience intuition. Could this account for some "psychic" phenomena?
