Here are 10 words, and some suggested sentences, culled from my Kash to-do list: 1. committee 2. bell-tower (or just _tower_) The committee has(have) decided to erect a (bell-)tower. 3. exactly It will be exactly 73 metres [or suitable equivalent] tall. 4. crane/derrick 5. bell(s) They will need a crane to lift the bell(s) into place. 6. net (for fishing) The fishermen have lost their nets. 7. napkin The [ethnic slur of your choice] people eat with their fingers and do not use napkins. 8. rummage around/poke around in with the finger They just rummage around in the pot with their fingers 9. bankrupt 10. toothpaste/toothpowder/dentifrice (or appropriate material) The king is bankrupt. He can't even afford to buy toothpaste. ;-))))))
