Leikur orðatengsla

Postby ffrench » 2013-01-20, 11:19

This is the best translation I could come up with for Word Association Game, but it may well be wrong, so, anyone with more knowledge, feel free to correct me.

You know how it works.

I have no idea whether "orðatengsl" makes sense, but assuming that it does, shouldn't be genitive ("orðatengla")? Or what is your translation supposed to mean literally?

Anyway...

It should be "word association game", or "game of word-association". I went for tengsl and not samband because orðasamband already means "phrase". You're right about the genitive.
