Well, yes, I dunno where I can find that... But let's give it time and if no one can find a work with that sign, then they can carry on starting from my German word :partyhat:

Off the top of my head: Arabic, Chechen, practically any Polynesian language, a bunch of NAILs and CSAILs. I'm sure I forgot a few. But it's not really a big deal. I was just trying to spice things up a bit. :silly:

Võro: aq mille? but why?
(q is a glottal stop, and is a full letter in Võro, so aq is the same sound as .)
(I'm not sure if it's acceptable to use a phrase in place of a word. But if you want a single word, I'd have to use aq, which leaves this "endless chain" in the exact same place as before: finding a word that starts with aˀ. The full phrase aq mille at least allows it to continue with something new....)

I think the concepts of "word" and "phrase" are different from language to language anyway, so we're good as far as I'm concerned. :wink:

It's a chain, Gormur. You're supposed to take the end of the word, not some random characters from the middle.

Cajun French: asteur now
Estonian: euroläbirääkimised negotiations with the European Union

Next person continues with something that starts with any number of letters from the end of euroläbirääkimised (i.e. the next word might start with -ed, or -sed, or -mised, or -äkimised.... as much of the ending of my word as you are able to use at the beginning of yours. Granted, -äkimised is a long shot! :mrgreen: It's usually just the last two or three letters.)
