Educational Penalties: Constantinople

( Educational Penalties, Social Penalties )

The player is required to “Spell Constantinople one syllable at a time.” As soon as he gets to the letter ” i ” all of the other players shout the following syllable “No ” The speller naturally thinks that he has made a mistake and commences again. Each time that he gets to the letter ” i ” the same cry of “No” is made and the poor victim may become very much confused and doubt his own memory as to spelling before he discovers the trick.
