    How do we account for the fact that most music words ARE NOT ENGLISH?

    How long is a piece of string. Anyways, most music words, in the broad sense, are English. Lead singer, guitar player, hit parade, smash hit, boy band, slow movement ....

    pah! it's not particulalrly musical is it! I mean I could say "fully booked" .. meaning a journey, but tit could apply to a venue or a restaurant. So no can do!

    full board
    *Eureka I think that was a little harsh on Gelly . . . .this is a dummy round after all and you don't want to chase away all the contestants either*

    Is that a point for music or will that too be disallowed?

    So if I'd written ticket hall we would've had a point because you buy tickets as much for a concert as to travel
    Still worried that most music terninology is not English

    ermmm ... no. I'm probably showing my age here, but "ticket halls" are an integral part of larger Victorian stations. Concert halls - which you have rightly scored on - don;t have ticket halls - they have ticket offices ... but so do railway stations, bus stations etc. However, "ticket hall" has a strong and unique association with Victorian railway stations, many of which are still standing. (Try googling it)

    *Eureka, do all contestants have a responsibility to keep a running score total on each post? I ask because I've not done it and I'm not sure whether I should be*

    I think that is up to the individual conscience.

    Ok. It does make it easier than scrolling back through the thread every time you post a scoring answer.

    oo I dunno ... transport isn't the same as travel. I din't give myself a point for "engine capacity" yer knows.....
    Motor launch, or steam train would be OK, because they are forms of transport that help yo travel. But engine details etc is too remote from the transport concept. We will allow musical instruments bits to be part of music though,because it's a smaller subject (so team B says).
