Playing Almost the Same Word Game in Multiple Languages
Adam will explain a word game which you can only really play once, but that one game of it will be intermittent over the rest of your life. A way to play it more than once is to adapt it to other languages. “Adapt to” rather than just “play in” because the English rules work badly or not at all in some languages. He will try to show how the English rules can fail in some other languages, and show some failed and successful attempts to find alternatives using resources not available in English.

Adam Atkinson is known for being the University of Pisa’s Fraud Department.
