    Default Game of Linguistics!!

    Let's see how many of you out there are linguists!
    Or are handy with .
    Here are the rules of the game. You say something in one language.
    EX: The Apple. (English) *The Apple.*
    Then, someone else has to say a different sentence that begins with the last letter of the last word in the previous sentence-- but in another language!!
    Sound confusing? Here's a continuation of the example:
    EX: The apple. (English) *The apple.*
    EX: Es delicioso. (Spanish) *Is delicious.*

    Then you continue. You can reuse a language, but only after 6 consecutive sentences have been written where the language hasn't been used. Here's a good example of a conversation:
    EX: The apple. (English) *The apple.*
    EX: Es delicioso. (Spanish) *Is delicious.*
    EX: Oui! Je suis d'accord. (French) *Yes! I agree.*
    EX: Dunkle Schokolade ist besser. (German) *Dark Chocolate is better.*

    Get it now?
    It can actually get pretty fun. You can probably tell from the examples, but let me clarify the format for your sentences:
    Sentence in whatever language(Name of Language in Parenthesis)*Translation into English within stars*
    The colors don't mean anything but to distinguish the appropriate parts of the post.
    Note: The sentences don't have to be relevant! Also, translation is required, even for English!
    Ready? Go!

    Your sentence was supposed to start with 'S' because 'Cars' ends in 'S'. That's okay. We'll just start over with your sentence.

    Si, suando nunha moto mellor que andar en coche. (Galician) *Yes, sweating on a bike is better than riding a car.*


    I'm a native English speaker, but my dad's side of the family is Argentine, so I speak both. And Spanish is so similar to Galician it's ridiculous.
