Spânzurătoarea- Romanian Hangman: OK, Hang-mania a ajuns şi pe forumul românesc.
Presupun că nu este nevoie să explic ce vom face în acest joc, toată lumea îl cunoaşte pe Spânzurat, nu-i aşa?

OK, Hang-mania hits the Romanian forum also.
I suppose there's no need for me to explain what we're going to do in this game, everyone knows the "Hangman", right?

Aşa că, ce-ar fi să începem...
Primul indiciu este: "Te forţează să îţi părăseşti casa şi totuşi, câteodată ţi-ai dori să nu se mai termine."

So, why don't we start...
The first clue: "It forces you to leave your home and still, sometimes you wish it would never end."



___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___


Cine vrea să ghicească prima literă? Nu vă fie teamă, n-o să vă spânzurăm...din prima. :p Haideţi să ne distrăm!

Who wants to guess the first letter. Don't be afraid, we won't hang you..right from your first try. :p Let's just have fun!


Laydee
Tuesday 01st of November 2005 03:39:46 PM
Okey,lorelai,here's my guess: M

:D:D:D


jvz8a
Wednesday 02nd of November 2005 06:10:03 AM
lol Please be careful! Laydee is my teacher... and it'd be a little difficult for her to keep helping me if she's hung!:p
*whispers* Are you sure you want letter m? :p



Laydee
Wednesday 02nd of November 2005 12:34:18 PM
Aww...:D:p

Hmm...I think so...Yes,I'm completely sure!:D:p

I STILL GO WITH M,LORELAI!!!!!!


lorelai
Thursday 03rd of November 2005 02:14:14 AM
Ooops, I'm afraid there's no M in this word, Laydee. :( But, as you were there first one to post in here..you get a second chance before getting a head on your hangman :D (besides, there's no way I could hang Javier's tutor at this stage of his learning :p)

So, clue no 2 is: There are two main reasons you'd take this for; one has to do with money and one...with having fun!

*whispering* Hey, Laydee, extra-tip, just for you :p : You rarely go wrong when guessing vowels.



___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___

M



Laydee
Thursday 03rd of November 2005 12:10:46 PM
*Wee* I got an extra-tip!:D *how nice isn't that!:p*

Well...Taking your tip into concideration..I'll go for O!

*hope it fits*:D


lorelai
Thursday 03rd of November 2005 11:16:49 PM
Oh yeah, there's definitely an O there :)
Hmm, should I give another clue now? OK...knowing foreign languages might come really handy when taking one of these.



___ ___ ___ ___ ___ _O_ ___ ___ ___

M


So, what's the next letter?


jvz8a
Thursday 03rd of November 2005 11:22:04 PM
*shakes head* *sigh* Let me guess... mmm... do I have any chances to see an [color=blue]Ă[/color] there? :) Maybe two? :D


lorelai
Thursday 03rd of November 2005 11:43:15 PM
Javier, your second post in the Romanian forum? How really nice! :)

Hey, Javi's got it! :D Two "Ă"s indeed.



___ _Ă_ ___ __Ă__ ___ _O_ ___ ___ ___

M



Goran
Thursday 03rd of November 2005 11:53:10 PM
I guess there should be a R at least. :)


lorelai
Friday 04th of November 2005 02:56:29 AM
Right from your first post in the Romanian forum ,Goran :) One "R".

Well, I feel we're not going to hang anyone in this game. :p



___ _Ă_ ___ __Ă__ ___ _O_ _R_ ___ ___

M



jvz8a
Friday 04th of November 2005 03:06:07 AM
Continuing... your suggestion was "go with vowels", so I'll go for [color=blue]E[/color]
*thinks he can't fail*:p


lorelai
Friday 04th of November 2005 03:13:09 AM
*thimks that Javier thinks correctly* *and that he already knows the answer* :D *and that it's totally great to have him on the Romanian forum* and...oops..too much thinking *brain overload*...keeping it simple : 1 "E"



___ _Ă_ ___ __Ă__ ___ _O_ _R_ ___ _E_

M



Laydee
Friday 04th of November 2005 03:27:34 AM
What about an I?:D

Oh God...EVERYBODY else know what it is,beside me!:(


lorelai
Friday 04th of November 2005 03:47:22 AM
Mhhm, let's bring our quest for vowels to an end :p :1 "I", indeed.

Come on, Laydee, I'm sure you at least suspect what the word is. :)



___ _Ă_ ___ _Ă_ ___ _O_ _R_ _I_ _E_

M



Laydee
Friday 04th of November 2005 04:41:24 AM
You know,I'm completely lost..I can't think straight today:(:(

I'll go for a S....

*hoping it fits,which I think it will*


lorelai
Friday 04th of November 2005 04:56:01 AM
Mmm, I'm afraid it doesn't :(. On the other hand, if you had gone one more letter down the alphabet...:D


___ _Ă_ ___ _Ă_ ___ _O_ _R_ _I_ _E_

M, S



Laydee
Friday 04th of November 2005 08:43:49 AM
Knew it!!!

T!

i cant think of the word yet,anyway!:(:(:(:(


lorelai
Friday 04th of November 2005 02:54:34 PM
Good job, Laydee! One "T" as well.



___ _Ă_ ___ _Ă_ _T_ _O_ _R_ _I_ _E_

M, S


As a remainder, the clues so far were:
1. It forces you to leave your home and still, sometimes you wish it would never end.
2. There are two main reasons you'd take this for; one has to do with money and one...with having fun!
3. Knowing foreign languages might come really handy when taking one of these.

CĂLĂTORIE! Am câştigat! :D


lorelai
Saturday 05th of November 2005 03:00:30 AM
Ce drăguţ din partea ta, Spilka! :D Dar, cum se spune, câştigătorul ia totul iar cuvântul era într-adevăr CĂLĂTORIE şi..tu câştigi. :p Ce ai câştigat? Dreptul de a ghici prima literă din cuvântul următor. :D

Wasn't that just awfully nice of you Spilka? :D But, as they say, the winner takes it all and the word was indeed CĂLĂTORIE and....you win. :p What did you win? The right to guess the first letter of the next word. :D


Să trecem aşadar mai departe...
Indiciul pentru acest cuvânt: Poţi folosi acest obiect atât în scop profesional, cât şi pentru deconectare.

Let's move on, then...
The clue for this word is: You can use this object for professional as well as recreational purpose.



___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___





jvz8a
Saturday 05th of November 2005 08:44:36 AM
I'm so sorry!! Spilka is not here... but... well, as I'm new to this forum... I'll take the turn :D
And my guess is.....[color=blue]A[/color]
*completely clueless this time* [yes, that clue didn't help much :)]


lorelai
Saturday 05th of November 2005 02:33:56 PM
Dacă primul indiciu v-ar spune cuvântul, eu când aş mai avea ocazia să spânzur pe cineva? :p
Îmi pare rău, Javi, nu există nici un A. :( Dar, dacă iei această literă şi îi mai adaugi ceva...:D
-
Well, if the very first clue gave you the word, when would I get the opportunity to hang anyone? :p
Sorry Javi, no "A" here. :( But, if you take this letter and add a little something...:D



___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___
A


Al doilea indiciu: Principala componentă a acestui obiect este de asemenea o parte de vorbire ce clarifică ori delimitează un substantiv.

Second clue: The main feature of this object is also a part of speech that clarifies or limits a noun.




spilka
Saturday 05th of November 2005 04:09:54 PM
Eu încerc asta: â


lorelai
Saturday 05th of November 2005 04:25:32 PM
Well, I'm afraid this was not the "little something" you had to add to A. :p



___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___

A, Â


Indiciul numarul trei, întrebaţi? În anumite situaţii de abia aştepţi ca acest obiect să apară, altădată îl cumperi doar ca să te ajute să umpli timpul.

Clue number three, you say? Sometimes you can't wait for this object to come out, at other times you'll only buy it to help you pass the time.

lorelai
Saturday 05th of November 2005 08:09:53 PM
Nu poate, cu siguranţă! :p
Avem 1 "V".

EDIT: I so cannot believe this!!! Sorry, guys, this is just me rambling on here, I need to keep the img thing out of the first line, so that it doesn't mess up the entire layout of the front page. Hopefully, this will do it. Feel free to ignore this paragraph!

REVISTĂ! Am câştigat din nou! :D :D
I'm starting to enjoy this game! :D


lorelai
Monday 07th of November 2005 02:08:03 AM
Wow, Spilka's really on a roll here. :p
Right, there was indeed an "Ă" and the word is "REVISTĂ"-magazine. Congrats, Spilka! :)
Now, would you guys like to let the winner pick the next word or should I keep posting them? In either case, as our winner of the night is not here right now, you'll still have to bear with me and my clues for the next word. :D




_R_ _E_ _V_ _I_ _S_ _T_ _Ă_

A, Â


OK, here we go - the next word is a big one, in both dimension and meaning :p and the clue is: It will always catch you by surprise! (Bonus clue: it's the infinitive form of a verb).

lorelai
Monday 07th of November 2005 02:38:22 AM
Yeap, we do have one "R" for Goran. :)

TO BE IGNORED! :D Now, what do I write here to fill one line? Hope this is enough, feeling totally uninspired.

WOW lore... you are the only one who cares for that! (the problems in the main page, I mean)
Now... for the game... is there a [color=blue]Ă[/color] here?


lorelai
Monday 07th of November 2005 02:56:38 AM
I can see that "Ă" is highly popular these days! :p And, of course, it's here. 1 "Ă"

Of course I care, Javi. I wouldn't appreciate it if someone else did it so... Then again, I'd better start looking for a better solution!

lorelai
Monday 07th of November 2005 03:33:13 AM
You guys are getting really good at this :). 1 "S" as well!

TO BE IGNORED, AGAIN! Still haven't come up with a better solution, still feeling totally uninspired.

Goran

There should be a T for sure :D


lorelai
Monday 07th of November 2005 03:44:39 AM
Hmm, do we have another winner of the night, Goran? :p *hides award for a few more minutes*

BTW, I need to apologise for the previous post, there were actually two "S"s here. Sorry! Added the second one in this post.

Goran

There must exist an A. :D


lorelai
Monday 07th of November 2005 04:06:59 AM
Well, if it must, then it'd better be here. :p Oh right, there it is. 1 "A"

TO BE IGNORED, AGAIN! OK, so I just copy this from one post to another. I really can't think HTML subtleties at this hour. :p

Mmm..sorry Film, I'm afraid there's no "M" inside this word. But, we have a special "new-student-welcoming" custom here and you don't get hanged..just yet. :p So please try again.

OK, clue no. two: This action is really good for your health, as it will make your heart pump more blood. :D

Monday 07th of November 2005 06:10:13 AM
haha darn. but thanks for the no-hanging policy. haha.

hmm. does it have the infinitive with it. ie: a vrea, a vorbi ect.?


Eu incerc asta "E"? :)


lorelai
Monday 07th of November 2005 06:27:24 AM
Very good choice, Film! One "E" placed.
To answer your question, yes, I gave the full (long) infinitive form, in which the actual verb is preceded by the particle "a". In this case, as you can see now, the infinitive form also includes "se", which denotes this is a "reflexive verb". More from this category: a se hotărî (to make up one's mind), "a se numi" (to be called), 2a se trezi" (to wake up), etc.




_A_ - _S_ _E_ - ___ ___ ___ _R_ _Ă_ ___ ___ _S_ _T_ ___

Monday 07th of November 2005 06:30:00 AM
yess! *cheers self*
oh, i did reflexive verbs in french class.
so this shouldn't be a problem. :)

hmm. eu încerc asta "i"? :)


lorelai
Monday 07th of November 2005 06:43:41 AM
Yes! *cheer Film some more* :p One "I" as well.
I'm glad you know what I was talking about with reflexive verbs. It's exactly the same in Romanian as in French.




_A_ - _S_ _E_ - ___ ___ ___ _R_ _Ă_ ___ ___ _S_ _T_ _I_

Monday 07th of November 2005 06:55:04 AM
Yay for I's!
oh great then! because i
completley understood the
french reflexive verbs.
i think i sent you a message
but, do you have msn? :)

hmmm. nu presupuneri încă. :)
eu încerc asta "L"?




sandman
Monday 07th of November 2005 01:28:25 PM
parcă Lorelei nu vrea să spânzure nimeni %)

haidem cu 'D'


lorelai
Monday 07th of November 2005 09:57:09 PM
Well, I'm usually quite non-threatening but, since Sandman suggested it and Film's guess provided me with the opportunity, let's start hanging. :p :p

That means: no "L"s but 1 "D".



_A_ - _S_ _E_ - ___ ___ __D_ _R_ _Ă_ ___ ___ _S_ _T_ _I_

M, L
The dashes (-) are there just to point out the spaces.


OK, clues review:
1. It will always catch you by surprise! (Bonus clue: it's the infinitive form of a verb).
2. This action is really good for your health, as it will make your heart pump more blood.

And don't you dare tell me it's not entirely obvious by now! :p

One last thing:
Postat de Film.
Nu fac presupuneri încă.
Just like in English, we say "a face o presupunere" - "to make an assumption".

Spilka câştigă ca de obicei.


sandman
Tuesday 08th of November 2005 01:34:38 AM
hehe, Spilka, în faţa spânzurătorii trebuie să fii mai atent %)

dar sper că Lorelei nu este deja atât de ameninţătoare, şi o să-i închidă ochii la acest Ş %)

altminteri o să rămânem fără câştigătorul ;(


lorelai
Tuesday 08th of November 2005 03:01:20 AM
Well, I'n not sure what Lorelei would have done but Lorelai is not enjoying one of her best moods and...jejeje..she's going to take in out on poor little Spilka. :D :p
So...nope, "a se îndrăgoşti" is not the word and...Lorelai gets to hang someone at long last. :D Sandman is right, our Spilka should really be more careful when faced with a hang-threat :p.



_A_ - _S_ _E_ - ___ ___ __D_ _R_ _Ă_ ___ ___ _S_ _T_ _I_

M, L
The dashes (-) are there just to point out the spaces.



Now, would anyone like to take another guess? :p
That reminds me, my nastiness buys you all some time to tell me whether you would like the winner to chose the next word. Speak up, people! :)

Dar sper că Lorelei nu este deja atât de ameninţătoare, şi o să i închidă ochii la acest Ş %)

Could I suggest that "o să rămânem fără câştigător" sounds better? :)


sandman
Tuesday 08th of November 2005 04:22:54 AM
of course, you're welcome %) (you're pretty polite for the one with the rope in her hands %))

deja - i meant, compared to your previous post here

well, God is my witness, i didnt want it to happen, Spilka !
but das hat mit ihrem singen die Lorelai getan %)

ps: dont know if anyone dares now, but not me yet %)


lorelai
Tuesday 08th of November 2005 04:43:33 AM
I kind of got where you were going with "deja" but it just doesn't sound right, using it here. Maybe you could say "Sper că Lorelai nu a devenit (mai) ameninţătoare" - "I hope Lorelai did not become (more) threatening".

LOL, I wasn't aware that I should just alter my nick a little bit to get an opera in my name. :D :D

Oh, about the word...I only said that Spilka's solution was not the right one, not that he didn't guess a lot of letters. :p Do you feel like trying again now? :p


film.
Tuesday 08th of November 2005 04:47:02 AM
uh oh! we've got some hanging! :)
ce despre... "O"? :P


sandman
Tuesday 08th of November 2005 05:17:50 AM
%) well, actually, kind of opposite (if such thing exists %) - not 'i hope Lorelai did not become more threatening', but 'i hope Lorelai become less threatening/is not that threatening anymore/this time'

so, you're not that Lorelai ? %) its good... you wont drown us... only hang !

with the word - its still pretty frightful %) maybe tomorrow *hoping others will do that*


spilka
Tuesday 08th of November 2005 05:39:40 PM
I don't mind you haven't admited my victory, Lore. You cannot imagine how boring it is to win over and over again. :p


lorelai
Tuesday 08th of November 2005 09:12:38 PM
OK, as it looks as if nobody wants to take away Spilka´s glory, let´s just give to Caesar (aka Spilka :p) what is Caesar´s. :D
Third time in a row, the laurel crown goes to Spilka. :)
Just to make sure everybody´s clear on it the word was "A SE ÎNDRĂGOSTI" - to fall in love.

I won't post another word right now, as nobody answered my question. Spilka, if you want, PM your new word to me so that we can start another game. If you don't...you already know: you'll still be stuck with me. :D

@ Sandman: OK, I apparently did not get it. Then the phrase would be "Sper că Lorelai nu mai este aşa/atât de ameninţătoare (acum)."


lorelai
Wednesday 09th of November 2005 02:56:54 AM
OK, with Spilka's blessing, I'm still the one to "torment" you here. :p

Shall we?

Nope, no "Ă"s in this one.
Hmm, I guess this means I have to give another clue, right?

Lipsa acestei trăsături e considerată o gravă abatere atunci când e vorba de lucrări academice.

Lack of this feature is considered a very serious offence when doing academic work.

Hmmm...s-ar părea că veşnicul nostru câştigător, Spilka, "şi-a găsit naşul"...nu-i aşa, Sandman? :p
Cea de-a treia faţetă a monedei tale are dreptate :D...avem şi un "G".

Şi s-ar mai părea că trebuie să încep să găsesc cuvinte mai dificile. :D

Hmm..it looks as if our perrenial winner Spilka got "busted"...right, Sandman? :p
The third side of your coin is also right... we also have a "G".

And it would also appear that I should start looking for more difficult words. :D

Thursday 10th of November 2005 03:55:58 AM
Haha, deci tot eu sunt "vrăjitoarea cea rea"...bine :p

"A îşi găsi naşul" (or "Orice naş îşi are naşul" - literally: "to find your godfather" or "Any godfather has his own godfather"-) are two idioms in Romanian that imply that there's always someone wh can beat you up in a certain area where you were very sure of yourself (especially if you had done something bad). Obviously, this last part doesn't apply to our situation, that's why I used the quotation marks.

@ Sandman: "şi apoi, aceea care l-a spânzurat".
It's written with one "e" when used as pronominal adjective in front of the noun (acea fată ) but with two when it's a pronoun ("Aceea care a venit e verişoara mea.") or a pronominal adjective placed after the noun ("Fata aceea care a venit e verişoara mea.")

@ Josh: "Bună tuturor"

Going back to our game, yes, there are "A"s in this word. Two of them actually.

So, Sandman, are you going to tell us the word or are we going to wait for Spilka? :p

I´m afraid there is no "D" to be found here but...as we're really happy to have you on the Romanian forum also (Welcome, by the way :) ), the "no-hanging" policy applies. :p.

cred că am făcut greşeala aceea pentru că mi-a apărut în minte pentru o clipă acest rând - "acel, care-l crescu, iubindu-l, cine-i, eu ori tu ?" %)

'a fi naşul cuiva' is the third idiom from that group %) means 'to know how to pacify someone'. apparently, this wasn't the case, that's why i used 'nu cred' %))

mmm, the word... de ce crezi că îl ştiu ? %) am avut numai singura variantă - 'sciziparitate' %))) dar moneda mea a distrus-o cu totul, indicând 'd' %) aşa că mai bine o să aştept pe cineva (să facă treaba sa %))

OK, let's see what we have here: first of all, we have no "M"s, accordingly, we have a "body" for Josh. :p
But we do have one "T" for Delia and one for Makosteszta. :)

And I have something for Sandman: LOOOOOOL. Adu-mi aminte să folosesc "sciziparitate" la un moment dat în jocul ăsta. Multe gâturi se vor frânge. :D
Hmmm, "a fi naşul cuiva" - "to know how to pacify someone".. nu-mi amintesc să-l fi auzit folosit în acest sens, dar probabil că există.

and there's also a danger that Lorelai will like hanging people and addict to it (soo, im saving her too %)

well, the word is întâmplător

Actually, Icehuntress, Spilka is past questioning :p. When he said "Sunt convins că... e acolo" he meant "I am positive there's an ... there".
"Does it contain any ...?" would be translated as "(Cuvântul) conţine vreun ...? "

lorelai
Sunday 04th of December 2005 01:40:35 AM
OK, for this one you will get hanged. Just to make it a vivid memory :p that will remind you that the letter "K" ONLY appears in foreign, loan words in Romanian.
(meaning words that we borrowed from other languages and which do not have a Romanian equivalent, not words whose etymology traces them to other languages, like this one :D)
