So people have many words to describe many things. And yet, sometimes, words can hurt, as they can be offensive. There are also words that people have taken as compliments and good vibes. But there is one word that I've been a little curious about, and I would like to have someone...
This came up randomly from a chat with a friend. Try giving the next poster a pair of words, and their job is to connect them with a chain of words as they deem fair; then, give another pair of words to the user below.
Kinda Word Association, but mutated. I'll give a few examples:
Lets play a game of Word chain! For the people who don't know how this game works:
You have to use the last letter of the last word posted in this thread as the first letter of your word. for example:
Person 1: hamburger
Person 2: racket
Person 3: tease
Here comes the first word:
It looks like Merriam Websters might be adding furry and fursona to the dictionary eventually. On the one hand it seems like furry should have been in there already, but after looking I noticed that "Trekkie" isn't even in there yet, and that should have been in there decades ago...
Hey all, I've got a rather odd question/request. I was recently reading an article on mental health in a Psychology magazine that suggested broadening one's vocabulary with words outside of one's natural language could help ease mental distress.

I’ve noticed that whenever I’m in an RP (which is once in a blue moon), I’m able to write hundreds of words per post, with over a thousand over the course of a day.

Why am I so prolific when I’m...
This is a recommendation of a book that I make great use of over many years and still use.
The LDA "ACE Spelling Dictionary" by David Moseley
This is an aurally coded English dictionary so you find words by using the sound of the word. Through use it also helps with the recognition of word...
So, this is a thing I did going on two years ago now. I quite enjoyed it then, and the stories that came out of it were better than I was expecting. So, since my story output has been abysmal lately, I'm going to give this another bash. And this time, I invite others to join in on it too.
The idea of this games is to start with a word, and the next poster will find a synonym for that word. However, you need to find a synonym that does not relate to the word before the last poster. It should look like this: happy -> elated -> animated -> active, and so on.
Find a synonym for: kind.
This word game is quite challenging but will improve your creativity. ^^ And offer some laughs too.
