For more practice on language logic and reasoning, refer to:

Now try some reasoning questions that ask you to translate English words into an artificial language. First, you will be given a list of three "nonsense" words and their English word meanings. The question(s) that follow will ask you to reverse the process and translate an English word into the artificial language. Your best approach to this type of question is to look for elements (parts) of the "nonsense" words that repeat. This is the best way to translate from the imaginary language to English. For example, if you know that linsmerk means oak tree and linsdennel means oak table, then you know that lins means oak. And, if lins means oak, merk must mean tree, and dennel must mean table. When you discover what a word element means in English, write it down. Then, look for the word elements that appear both on the list and in the answer choices.
