With the current jamboree in Korea and Japan about to start, I thought it
might be worth asking a few questions about how people deal with sports and
games in their conlangs.
Do your languages have words and constructions relating to consports in
Do they have words and constructions relating to `real' sports? If so, are
these mainly newly created words, or `internationalised' loans like gol,
Do you have an idioms which have sporting origins but are used more
generally in your language, such as the many British idioms based on cricket
and the American ones based on baseball?
