Title: Word Association Game
Post by: KizzyKazaer on February 08, 2018, 04:35:13 PM
A game played with much enjoyment by my family at Christmas...

Here's a word, you think of something connected with it and add your own word, next person responds to your word, and so on!

I'll kick things off:

Had to Google for the link between bananas and Carmen Miranda - apparently she earned the nickname of 'Chiquita Banana Girl' and wore trademark hats featuring fruit..

A Carmen Miranda sprite is a weather phenomenon related to thunderstorms, so there you go - getting a bit of an education on this thread!

So, following on from sprite, the more traditional meaning of this word:

Sunny, what's the link between Rio Grande and Piccolo?  (yes, I did Google, but all I saw there was in another language and the translation left me even more confused  >hmm< )

I'm sure you haven't just posted randomly  ;-)  so following on from piccolo (definition - a small flute):

Music
Title: Re: Word Association Game
Post by: Sunny Clouds on February 17, 2018, 10:47:49 AM
Sorry, parallel mental associations. 

1.Words for big and small, e.g. Italian

Grande = big
Piccolo = small

The 'gr' root for big and 'pic/mic' root for small is found in a varity of Indoeuropean languages.  E.g. English great (linked to German gross and French grand in addition to our having both those words); and micro (borrowed from Greek) & pickney (Carribean English for small child, probably taken from Portuguese).

Grande and Piccolo appear in English untranslated as a size in some contexts, particularly relating to food and drink as well as a qualifying size term for a variety of musical instruments, which leads us onto...


2. musical instruments (named for their size)

Grand piano
Piccolo


Once we got off into fiesta, rio, grande etc. that was my mind off on one linguistically.
