@Gary, thanks for the idea.
It would really be a good addition to wordroupz. You are welcome to design the icon as you last mentioned, showing the multilingual aspect of wordgroupz. And we start working on this feature. I'll need help from people speaking different languages for this purpose.

Will keep trying... also means I don't have to worry about as much what you finally name your activity :-)
FWIW: "Collect Words" is my favourite suggestion.
Quick question: Does wordgroupz allow you to collect words in different languages, say if I wanted to group the Arabic, Spanish, and English word for "Hello" together (as a way of learning language vocabulary)? If it can support that use, I could possibly use an icon with a single word in several different languages.
