Having read a few posts (and reading a book on the subject), i decided to start this topic
If you've heard of picture acocciation you'll know what i mean
Here is an example.
Spanish for old is - Viejo, pronounced Vee Ay How.
This is the example i was given for it
Imagine a Veterans Administration hospital - a VA hospital - that's so old and decrepit they have to tear it down and build a new one. Before they lay the dynamite, the crew foreman calls to the contractor and him "We don't have to waste dynamite on this VA hospital. It's so OLD i can knock it down with a Hoe.
A VA hospital so old, you can knock it down with a hoe. Therefore Old = Viejo
That one is a story asociation.
Basically, get a word from the dictionary (Cornish that is). Create a mental picture and describe it to us. It doesnt have to be a story, it can be a story as well like the one above
It can be as horrible, disgusting or sexually oreintated as you like.
Remember, the more unusual/funny it is, the better you will remember it.
We have nearing 200 pages on the SWF, lets try to get that high with this one
This topic is so that it will help learners learn Cornish Vocabulary
I'll start us off:
Myttin - Morning (Mit-ten)
Imagine, it's so cold in the Morning that you have to put your mittens on
I look forward to seeing other suggestions (we may be ablke to make a book out of them lol)
Can you remeber what Old is in Spanish?? without looking back? :lol:
