spoon is koulika

koulika = spoon (noun) (some things Google found for "koulika": a rare term; a rare last name that can be Greek; similar Kulika is an Ugandan non-governmental organization for education and community development; possibly the name of a village in India)

Word derivation for "spoon" :
Basque = koilara (also goilare)
Finnish = lusikka
Miresua = koulika

I needed a word to post, so I just mixed this one up. It actually occurs in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, but not in the first few paragraphs. A tea spoon is mentioned during the "Mad Tea-Party".
