Have you ever played the game Word Association on a forum? If so, then you probably know what this post is going to be about. If not, then here’s how to play:
The given word is green, and you are the person who is going to post next. You need to think of a word to reply with, and whatever word you reply with is what the person after you has to associate a word with. If you think of grass, then you would post it. The game might start out with green, but after about 10 posts, it could turn into something completely different:
That is word association.
But it varies with everyone. Someone else could have thought of “cleaner” when they read bleach, or “sill” when they read “window”.
It all has to do with perception, which I have learned is a very interesting thing!
What do these phrases mean? Have you ever heard of them?
- He bought the farm.
- Ain’t that the berries!
- Do go on.
- That takes the cake.
What do you think of when you hear these words?
Please leave a comment with your thoughts on what they mean. 🙂
Don’t read on until you have commented me with what you think. 😛 I don’t want to change your mind or anything!
- Bought the farm = died.
- All other phrases are located here.
I think of…
- the tank (in the pasture)
- dirt devil
I hope you guys have a nice weekend! ^^ 🙁 Mine is starting horribly.
This was an exercise in speech class.
