Multilingual Shiritori

Postby ILuvEire » 2009-06-02, 2:20

There is a Japanese game, called shiritori, in which you chose a word that has the same kana as the last kana of the previous word.
Ex:
nomu - to drink
murasaki - purple

Now, I propose a slight change to make the game a little easier, we use the last letter instead.
Ex:
nomu - to drink
uchi - me in Kansai dialect

So, the first word is

ギリギリ giri giri
just barely (doing something) Japanese

(So the next word would start with an "I")

[flag]ko[/flag]아프리카 Africa.


예문: 미나는 코끼리를 타러 아프리카에 가고 싶어요. 미나는 코끼리를 아주 좋아해요. 언젠가 성인이 되자 코끼리를 사고 매일 놀기만 해요.
Example sentence: Mina wants to go to Africa to ride elephants. mina likes elephants very much. When she wil grow up she will buy herself an elephant, and they will be playing all the time.

Well that ruined it. What does 아프리카 end with? It would be nice for a romanization. I'm going to go with 'a'.

Albeit the Scot in me is of the Western stock and the red of the Cairngorms, the heather and the Lewissian gneiss, the Viking in me was there when you uttered the first word of your leid.
