Prototype language-building party game where players construct new words

Have you ever encountered a situation where a word didn’t quite capture the sentiment you wanted to communicate?

I’m hungry, and it’s making me irritable... Maybe I’m “hangry”? But I’m not actually hungry and angry. Maybe I’m “hungritable”? Hmm..

Or do you know of a word in one language that doesn’t make sense or exist in another?

Schadenfreude is a German word for “pleasure derived by someone from another person's misfortune".

The purpose of this game is to capture these unique aspects of language and experience them. Words are fluid, and their meaning changes over time based on cultural impacts. By playing Linguo, you get to see this process first-hand, maybe creating unique and interesting words that could become more real as you use them.
