Find the correct words for these pictures!

Hi everyone! ^_^

Checking photo collections in my netbook made me think of the words for the pictures. However, I found it not too easy to find the correct words. What about you? I've checked the answers. The answer of each picture is one English word except number 5. Let me know your idea or guessing. :))

* Participants have already found the answers and I wrote them at the bottom of each picture. Hence, you can guess yourself before looking at the answers. Thank you. ^^

1. This is the easiest one. What is the color of the pen beside dark grey and maroon?

ANSWER: NAVY

2. What is the word for the cup-shaped object in this picture which used to roast chicken and corn? Well, this is actually not its function.

ANSWER: MORTAR

3. Please guess the word for the object by the arrow.

ANSWER: OTTOMAN

4. This one can be burned. What do you think it is?

ANSWER: CHAFF

5. He is sitting on the bench and shaking it, so what kind of bench is this? The answer would be three words.

ANSWER: SWING GLIDER BENCH

So, how is it? Do you know the words I asked? Let me know about it. Thank you so much for your time.

Have a blessed new week! ^_^

Dear Oporazita and Zivi,

My apology! ^_^

After checking once again the word for number 4, I was the one mistaken. )))

Sure! It is CHAFF. Now I know the difference between husk, chaff, and bran. :D

Zivi,

1) LOL....honestly, I now want to say that the first pen is dark grey or let's say pale black. :D C'mon, dear Zivi. You can say it's pale navy. :D

2) Wow! Fireresistive steel. That sounds cool! :) In the picture, its function relates to spices.

3) lol..hocker. I thought this was English. Very awesome analysis. 8) There is one English word for this.

4) YES. This one. I made mistake. ^^

5) No...... :D

You're welcome and thank you for your nice words, Zivi. I'm glad that we can learn from each other. :)

Mishaikh,

3) YES!!! It is OTTOMAN. Congrats!!! :)

2) NO.

I hope everyone try again for the rest numbers, 2 and 5.

Have a blessed day! ^^

2) Stone basin.

3) Is that Ottoman (round)?

Comment by Zivi on June 13, 2018 at 8:16

1. there are so many shades of each colour that I find it hard to know each of them.

2. here we have such bowls made of fireresistive steel. They are called fire bowls. In German: Feuerschalen

3. Here such furnitures are called: Hocker. which you might translate to stool in english. I also found a term "seated inhumation burial" which is an archäologic term :-!

4. chaff pellet. you can get such pellets here even from wood wool or turf.

5. to me it is just a humble garden bench. :-!

Hi Onee-Chan, you came up with a complex task. Nice to know that nobody is perfect ......lol ..... helps to get back on the ground and reckognise there is a lot to learn:-D

Thanks

Dear all, I hope you try again, please.... Thank you so much. ^^

There's no restriction on reading explanation for the others. :D You can get inspiration from everywhere. This is our way of learning vocabulary. :)

Let me analize and explain for the rest numbers. ^^

Oporazita,

1) Correct for Navy blue. Congrats! :)

2) It's not pottery or clay plate. In fact, it is made of stone.

3) Side table. NO. This is one type of sofa.

4) You're so close. But husk or chaff is a general term. This is related to paddy.

5) Yes for the word 'glider', but you have to complete the answer. Including bench, it would be tree words. :)

Roman,

1) Dark blue is correct, but I meant navy. I often see this while online shopping. :D

2) Hm...okay, name of the stone plate. But it is more like a cup generally, in other countries.

3) LOL...C'mon..

4) NO, not at all. A certain husk.

5) Ahaa....Nice name. :D NO.

Have a gorgeous week as well, Roman!

Yes, it is my nephew. ^^

Olga,

1) Navy, OK.

2) There is a common word for this and it is made of stone. The difference is just on the shape. It is more like a cup made of stone, generally.

3) Thanks, Olga. 'Pouf' is a new word to me. Let's see the difference: pouf has no legs, this one has legs.

4) NO. It's another part of paddy.

5) Almost correct! If you add 'patio' in the answer, it would be four words. You can combine your answer with others to find the correct word I mean. :D

Marija,

1) Exactly. You are sure of this. Congrats!

2) NO. It is made of stone.

3) NO. This is not a table, but a kind of sofa. However, I found some of them could also become a box, multi-function.

4) NO. This is a kind of husk.

5) 'Pew' is a new word to me. Thank you, Marija. It's another one.

Hi Oporazita, Roman, Olga, and Marija! I'm so glad to see you participating. :)

Your answers are really great. Thank you so much. Again, I learned new words from you. I will make a list of them. :)

Number one now has been answered correctly. I mean navy/navy blue.

Navy: a dark blue colour, oxforddictionary.

Comment by Marija on June 12, 2018 at 22:52

Hello! I will try to guess:

1- Navy Blue

2- Earthenware

3- Taboret

4 - Sawdust

5- Pew bench

Hi Onee-chan,

Well, we thought yesterday with some members here...it was challenging, because some things can be just from the culture they belong to, like that plate, for example.

Here what we decided:

1. It might be blueberry (if navy doesn't macth)

2. As Oporazita says - clay plate (here comes cultural definition)

3. Pouf

4. hay

5.  Swings Patio Bench

Thank you for blog, it´s really challenging))))
