African Indigenous Languages word-association game

Postby MillMaths » 2012-05-20, 21:06

This is like the NAIL and CSAIL word-association games, but in African Indigenous Languages (AIL). :D Next word should have some association with the current word.

NB: In this thread, AIL shall exclude Afrikaans, Arabic, and all colonial European languages (English, French, Portuguese, Spanish, etc).

First word …

I'm not sure ancient languages where the original intent of this game, but I'm cool with it!
I've been thinking of creating an ancient language version of these games myself. :P

Ancient languages are fine, as long as they are indigenous (and African). :)
