Excellent - you've even got a triple-play with Scandinavian!

I was trying to guess some of them before I read your definitions, and rampant was the only easy one - except I was picturing pants on male sheep instead of a way to breathe :)

I'm saving these along with the previous lists for when I need a break from conventional thinking. Great mental exercise and entertainment!

Thanks! I appreciate the comments.
