The Dictionary Game

Post by Zrip »

I used to play this game on another forum I frequented back in the day: the Dictionary Game!

The rules are simple: the user above will give a word to define (whether it’s in English, Spanish, French, Swedish, Japanese, Swahili… or any language of your choosing) and the next user will have to post what they think it means or what they think it should mean. Example:

P1: Define ‘oxymoron’
P2: A super moron! Define ‘geranium’
P3: A disease that spread germs around. Define ‘kamikaze’

And so on and so forth. Words that are part of a fictional work are acceptable (eg: ‘Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious’ from Mary Poppins). Also, they need to be actual words you can look up the definition to and not something gibberish like ‘dhfkjsngksnfujvbnkjdnkjsfs’. In the case of languages that don’t use the Roman alphabet (eg: the Japanese writing system) that's fine but please provide the romanization of the word. We are here to give meanings to words we assume we don’t understand— but we need to be able to read them in a script that everybody is familiar with.

Since this is a family-friendly forum, please keep your choice of words PG appropriate. Before posting a word to be defined you should at least know the real definition (or at least be certain of its rating). Also feel free to provide the actual definition but keep it covered in the spoiler BBCode.

Okay, I think I covered everything that needed to be said, so have fun! I’ll begin:

Define ‘hippopotomonstrosesquipedalian’ (Of or pertaining to extremely long words.)

Define bungalow.
(You're doing it right! The point is to come up with your own meaning; it can be as crazy and nonsensical as you want it to be! I already provided its definition in the spoiler next to the word [which is optional to do], so if you're really curious what it means just highlight it)

The all knowing eye of a higher being referred to as Teles!

Define bombilate

There is nothing to define. You just wrote it wrong. It must read "Na Celle" and is a german greeting to a german town ("Hi Celle"). Similar to the Austrians greeting their capital "Hallo Wien", often misspelled as halloween.
