Sab's Fab Quirky Language Quiz No.1

Fun Language Quiz No.1

Hi everyone! I just realised that I could still access an old OLD site of mine I started back in 1997ish which I found lurking in the backwaters of the net, not accessible by the normal means.

And what's more, I realised that there is a ton of fun language stuff on there, including... some wonderfully quirky language quizzes, so I'm going to republish them here for everyone's delectation and delight!

They're short, fascinating and I'll give you the answers once a few of you have had a go - OK? So here we go with No.1, and don't forget to comment!

Sab's Fab Quirky Language Quiz No.1

1) Name ten everyday parts of the body with 3 letters - no slang or vulgarity please!

2) Translate this traditional French verse into English:
Un petit d'un petit
S'étonne aux Halles;
Un petit d'un petit
Ah! Degrés falles.
3) Name the origins of these coleopterous food references:

   a) Cool cherry cream and a nice apple tart
   b) Tangerine trees and marmalade skies
   c) Semolina pilchard

4) What is found between a 'hanging-post' and a 'banging-post'?

More language fun coming soon! I'm always keen to read and pass on great language-related pieces, so do send them in and I'll give you whatever namecheck and link you like. Thanks for visiting, and...
