Forming composite words

A game with vocables - Form a new word from several given words. For example: Wort (word) + Spiel (game) = Wortspiel (play on words).

Click on the other fields to find the word (or words) that match the first word to form a compound word. Once you have found it, check the relevant fields. With the round radio button you determine which of the words is first (in the example above: "Wort"). The compound word is then displayed (in one case there are two options ;-).

Optionally, you can also listen to the words when you click. To do this, mark the check box below.
