  • la selporpi fonxa (la because it is called that, but it is not any kind of fonxa)
    • la spofu fonxa (spofu because it malfunctions, it is not broken into pieces)

Broken phone is a Lojbanistani version of Chinese Whispers. Here is the telegraphic description of how it works:

  • Take a list of people
  • Choose a text
  • The first person on the list translates it into lojban and sends it on to the next
  • The message gets forwarded all the way round, being translated back and forth betwen Lojban and English
  • Some coordinator gets everything together and posts it on the mailing list, the wiki and wherever else he thinks is convenient.

N.B.: The intermediate language doesn't have to be English.
