A Conversation for Zzzzz

A devious approach to fame, if not fortune. Someone might like to stake a claim for the first entry in the Guide by discussing lava in Hawaiian - unless someone wants to discuss indefinite articles and beat even that.
(Free pumice stone to the first person who explains this gibberish.)

A'a is a rough spiky type of Hawaiian Lava - send me my pumice stone now!

Ah ha - a geologist or possibly a Scrabble player. I was going to suggest pahoehoe for word of the day but I was beaten to it by a disappointingly large margin.
Pumice stone on the way. (Did I forget to mention that it's a virtual pumice stone? Let's hope you've already received a virtual bathtub.)

Yes, I wash my virtual Aardvark in it.

Talking about Alphabetical extremities....
I thought I'd just point out that the english alphabet's last letter is z, but for example the norwegian alphabet has three more letters in it, which all comes after Z. Those are Æ,Ø & Å.

So an article about Ældermen in British local government, or the Ænglo-Saxon language, would trump the Z's and go after them in the guilde?

Only in Norwegian lexical order. In English, the AE ligature is treated as if it were A E.
