Icelandic Word Game: I think it's time the Icelandic Discussion gets a word association game. It will be beneficial to improving our Icelandic vocabulary and hopefully allow us to learn from one another. It's played like this: you post the word that you think of when you see the persons post above yours. Make sure to include both the Icelandic word and its English translation!

Example:
Person 1: vetur - winter
Person 2: kuldafatnaur - winter clothes
Person 3: jakki - jacket

Now, lets start:

tunglskin - moonlight

peningar- money(plural)

btw...seill... can be any size and it can technically be any kind of paper. but it usually connected to money... if you say "seill" people will assume you are talking about a bill(money made out of paper)

what about forming a sentence to every word? i think, that could be good practice for our grammar...
