An interesting list. Many of these terms and expressions are much more
general than just UP, e.g.,

BAKERY: Baked goods, rather than a place where things are baked. "Go store an
get me some bakery, eh?"

BIKE RIDING: In Yoopanese, it's not always aufficient to say "biking,"
"skiing," or "snowmobiling." Instead, substitute the phrase "bike riding," also
"snowmachine riding," or even "ski riding."

I didn't check DARE for any of the items on the list, but I suspect that DARE
gives a much better picture on most of them.
