I will start the game by posting a word in a language of my choice. The next person will post either another word in the same language or the same word in another language, and so on.

For example, if the last word is (“grass” in Hungarian), the next word can be another word in Hungarian (say, kék (“blue”)) or a word for “grass” in another language (say, трава (Russian)).

Only 2 rules:
1) If you are making a comment to someone in the game, you must still PLAY the game. If you have nothing to add on your turn, you can't comment.
2) If you add a word in a non-Roman alphabet, you must add the pronunciation (also to make sure you weren't just cutting a pasting :)) (If you really want to show off, try IPA!)

OK, I lied, one more rule. :)
3) Try to be as exotic as you can.

I'll start

----------------------
[id] bunga
flower Indonesian
-----------------------------

Now the next person will post either another Indonesian word or a word for "flower” in another language. (You don't have to follow my format)

Cos

Irish word for foot.

Cos is also the Catalan word for body. Does this mean we can switch the word to 'body', or change the language to either Catalan or Irish ?
