Quoth the OP:
Aisling wrote:And a word-association game for all Germanic languages.
Nothing there specifying the etymological origin. Of the previous ten responses, four were of non-Germanic origin wholly or in part.

As an aside, I really don't understand why so much nitpicking goes on in these threads. This is word association. Look at the previous word, then type what pops into your head. Anything more than that and you're overthinking it.
