MSCR108 (Conversation Rite)

This item is not in the library — it is a part of: C. Cardew (ed.), Nature Study Notes (full, 1969).

Sit in a circle. Choose one word from one of the following topics: Your name (christian or surname); The weather; Entertainment (sport, films, TV, theatre, etc); Health (or ill-health); a topical issue. Say this word three or four times in any way you like (sing, shout, wisper, etc). Then repeat the word three or four times that your neighbour on your left has been saying. If you don't know what he has been saying, say, "I beg your pardon." You can say the new word in any way you like, except that if it has been whispered, you must whisper it to. Stop when you have said as many words as there are people in the circle. A pencil and paper will help — write down the words the person on your left says and tick them off as you say them. Be polite, and try not to speak when someone else near to you is speaking.
