Is it ok to repeat the same word in a different language?
Is it really the "same word" given the difference in usage? (The Spanish word, for instance, doesn't have the sense of "confrontation between military forces".)
I think the more rules one adds to a "word association game", the less sense it makes. It should be the first thing that pops into your head. If you think about it too much, you're doing it wrong.
