Ah, but I don't want anyone to be *eliminated*. I hate games where you
don't get to play anymore if you're not good enough. Too much like high
school. When you reach a level that is a real challenge for you, you can
stay there, and stay in the game. Perhaps you shouldn't lose letters for
messing up: perhaps instead those who accept the challenge should lose a
letter each time they produce a grammatical sentence that adequately
describes the flashcard. For many people the entire vocabulary is
LOL. SOUNDS VERY INTERESTING. I WOULD BE INTERESTED
IN THIS. THOUGH I MUST AGREE WITH DloraH I BELIEVE I
WOULD BE ELIMINATED PRETTY QUICKLY, ALSO.
