Ancient Alphabet Game

Postby księżycowy » 2012-05-26, 14:42

No, I'm not calling this "ancient" because the game is so old. :P Working of the popularity of the Alphabet and Word Association games around Unilang, I figured I'd start them here. But why limit it to just Latin?
Any ancient/classical/dead languages are welcome!
This is the alphabet game, just to be clear. The next word starts with the next letter of the (English) alphabet. However, if the language you're working with is either missing a letter or has an extra letter feel free to skip or add it respectively.
Oh, and if it uses a script that is not supported, feel free to use transliteration.
I almost started this in the "Other Languages" section, but the Latin sub-forum is already here, and it probably would easily get lost in the other part of the forum.

I know. Last I remembered the flag was just a '?'. Apparently it's been changed to the flag of Ireland now though, so I guess I can use it.

It's a shame Old Church Slavonic only has the ? flag. I'd suggest changing it to the Pan-Slavic triband, but it's the same as the flag of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia and so it's in use for Serbo-Croatian.

Indeed it is. But other languages use the same flag. So that shouldn't stop you, or anyone else for that matter!
