To: LINGTYP <lingtyp at listserv.linguistlist.org>

Dear all,

I’m making a list of non-compositional words for the rock-paper-scissors
game or similar games.
In other words, I’m looking for words for “rock-paper-scissors” that do not
consist of words for “rock”, “paper”, and “scissors”, or any other
meanings, such as German Schnick Schanck Schnuck, Thai bpao ying choop, etc.
I would much appreciate it if you could share with me any words for this
game or its kind that do not consist of meaningful words.
