Commissioning New List
- I'm not sure, did we finish the last list (Archeological
Termninology)? If so, might I commission a household objects list?
Many of the words might already be extant, such as oven, bed, etc. but
we might as well flesh out a full list so we can publish them for
easy, public access. Maybe we can asterix Wulfila words and leave
neologisms un-asterixed? Either way. Here are some (70 words) off
the top of my head-please help me by adding household words not
commissioned if you are able to think of any. I think I used mostly
American terms, or so I tried.
Air Conditioning/Air Conditioner
Bidet (Washroom sanitary device, look it up)
Linoleum (Good luck with that one.)
Loveseat (Sofa of two sitting places?)
Nightstand (Bedside table)
The list could go on for ages...I actually rather feel we should
divide it up into sections and go into depth with different
categories. For example, computer parts could be divided into
printer, keyboard, monitor... Television into satelite, cable, T. V.
station/channel, series, episode, sitcom, cartoon, etc. I've fleshed
out most furniture, rooms, etc. The fun part will be making stickers
to put all over my flat to help me remember my vocab. For those of
you with roommates, I don't recommend this.
