Stavraðaspælið

Postby Mulder-21 » 2012-08-08, 2:53

Her kemur eitt nýtt spæl, sum eisini finst í øðrum kjaktorgum, men sum eg havi víðkað eitt sindur.

Grundleggjandi fara vit ígjøgnum føroyska stavraðið, og vit siga eitt orð, ið byrjar við tí bókstavinum og koma við eini enskari umseting. MEN: munurin á okkara spæli og tí á hinum kjaktorgunum er hesin: Vit skriva eisini ein føroyskan setning, har orðið verður nýtt.

Føroyska stavraðið er: A Á B D Ð E F G H I Í J K L M N O Ó P R S T U Ú V Y Ý Æ Ø (men eingi orð byrja við Ð)

Here's a new game that exists on other forums, but I've expanded it a bit.

Basically we're gonna go through the Faroese alphabet, and we pick a word and also provide an English translation. HOWEVER: The difference between this game and the one on other forums is this: We also write a Faroese sentence, in which the chosen word is used.

This is the Faroese alphabet: A Á B D Ð E F G H I Í J K L M N O Ó P R S T U Ú V Y Ý Æ Ø (But no words begin with Ð)

Eg skal byrja: / I'll begin:

apa - ape/monkey - Í djóragarðinum eru nógvar apur
Gløgt er gestsins eyga. (Føroyskt orðafelli)
Wise is the stranger's eye. (Faroese saying)
L'occhio dell'ospite è acuto. (Proverbio faroico)
Hosťovo oko je múdre. (Faerské uslovie)
