Huliganov’s 2008 (reset for 2015) Christmas Language Identification Quiz


Original YT playout date: 6 December 2008
Duration: 9:10

The earlier comments have been removed in order to give this quiz a new life on Facebook Polyglots group in 2015. Most of the people there won’t have seen this video. Sorry if your comment is gone, it was there 7 years. Fkriuk won the original quiz.

It’s 10 thirty second long clips featuring mystery languages with as many visual clues removed as I could.

If you wish to take part in the quiz it will be open until the first person gets 100% or until the New Year, if earlier.

Answers must be added in Polyglots Group on Facebook or on Huliganov.TV as I have deleted the comments below, not sent by mail for just my attention, as part of the game is to see what marks other contestants got, and use also some numerical deduction to work your way to the right answer.

There will be clues over the course of the quiz, how many depends on how much the participants seem to need.

I’m only going to answer one (probably the first one) of each contestants sets of answers per day. This is to give everyone a fair chance. Come back and try again the next day and you’ll get another mark.

1 point for each correct answer.
A right answer imprecisely defined or misspelt gets 0.5 points, and it’s 0.2 points for getting the right language but in the wrong place.

Enjoy!

I couldn’t actually give credit for the YouTube materials taken to make this quiz as it would have given the game away, but if you see your piece used in here, please accept my gratitude, and please feel free to make yourself known in the comments after New Year. There are now annotations with these acknowledgements but please do not click on tchem while doing the quiz.

The store I refer to at which you can purchase any Amazon book and I will receive a small commission is http://astore.amazon.com/wwwusenetposc-20 the offer to use this commission on prizes is no longer current.

but as that is quite long to remember I’ve set up a new domain forwarding which is http://www.OIOIOIO.com, which you will easily remeber as it one of only a handful of web domains which reads the same upside down and back to front. It’s a wonder nobody else had booked it already, really. Just have to remember it’s the seven letter not the five letter one – that one belongs to someone else.

I also have http://www.OIOIOIO.eu which will be to the Amazon store for people in the EU, as they will find the P&P cheaper as well as not being troubled with customs duty and the wrong coding on DVDs.

Each of these stores has some recommended products but via these links you can buy any book, music, film or piece of equipment Amazon has to offer. If you can buy cheaper elsewhere do, if you were buying on Amazon anyway try and remember to use these domains to enter and you’ll be funding future competition prizes, which will be Amazon gift tokens, once I get enough commissions to fund them, which isn’t happening this time as, like I say, only one commission has been earned there so far, which is a tiny sum.

Enjoy the quiz, and enjoy your festive season!

Sunday Quiz #2 – The Book of Romans 5-8.


This is the second in a new series of quizzes on this Channel. It consists of a ten question, multiple choice quiz and then a photo, which might or might not have anything to do with the quiz but actually serves as a buffer to help you not accidentally see the answers, which are given at the end along with an assessment of your score.

Each of these quizzes will be in the Quiz Section of the right hand navigation, so if you liked this and want to try some of the earlier ones, you’ll be able to find them there, and also they’ll be classified to another place depending on the theme of the quiz. The idea is to teach something useful within a set theme, which might be a text from the Bible or another text Christians and others might wish to be familiar with, and a missing word.  Otherwise they might related to a specific theme from history, nature, etc. It is not purely a trivia quiz but a way to spark your interest in looking up more about the topic.
