African Indigenous Languages word-association game

Postby MillMaths » 2012-05-20, 21:06

This is like the NAIL and CSAIL word-association games, but in African Indigenous Languages (AIL). :D Next word should have some association with the current word.

NB: In this thread, AIL shall exclude Afrikaans, Arabic, and all colonial European languages (English, French, Portuguese, Spanish, etc).

First word …

I'm not sure ancient languages where the original intent of this game, but I'm cool with it!
I've been thinking of creating an ancient language version of these games myself. :P

Ancient languages are fine, as long as they are indigenous (and African). :)

[Edo] kpẹkpẹ [kpὲkpέ]
to frequent a place; to visit frequently
Dette er nemlig Formelen, som beskriver Selvets Tilstand, naar Fortvivlelsen ganske er udryddet: i at forholde sig til sig selv, og i at ville være sig selv grunder Selvet gjennemsigtigt i den Magt, som satte det. (This is namely the formula, that describes the condition of the self, when despair is completely eradicated: by relating itself to itself, and by willing to be itself, the self is grounded transparently in the power which constituted it) (Søren Kierkegaard, The sickness unto death)
