Sumario: The "boyeo" or working with ox-carts is one of the most ingrained traditions in the Costarican being. It was originated in the colonial period and developed in the XIX and XX centuries. Even though the "boyeo" is less currently used, its practice still keeps its usage in diverse areas of the country. The "boyeo" has being used as a national emblem because it refers to the identity of the people of Costa Rica. The image of the "boyero" with his cart and with his ox-yoke is part of the history of countless Costarican families. This article refers to a research about the uniqueness of this tradition in Costa Rica regarding similar traditions in other countries. The study of its particular language was based in the use of the ethnographic method and in a number of additional qualitative techniques. The by-product of this project was a specific glossary. This lexicon introduces various non-registered utterances or with different acceptations, which complement the work developed about costarican terms by other colleagues. The lexicon of the "boyeo" is recognized as an example of linguistic wealth imbued in the daily nature, as well as it is the intangible exponent of the cultural heritage of an entire country.
