Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So for my linguistics class I have some lab were I basically just need to ask people what words come to mind if I say X. At first I thought that I'd just ask my roomates but I figure that I'm crazy and asking people across the internet sounds like a great way to sample how the current populace thinks. You guys want me to help me out?
Basically I'll post a word and you respond with the first few words that come to mind in the order that they come to mind. Don’t try to choose just one. I will be writing down the first three words that you say as you say them. For example, if I say light, you might say dark, heavy, house. Short phrases are ok too. For example, if I say AOL, you could say You’ve got mail.
Sound good? Only one rule though because of the nature of the study, you must be a native speaker of English. Sorry for excluding anyone... Anyways on to the first word if you are so inclined:
