Let us give a number to each letter of the alphabet starting at 1 for
a and going to 26 for
z. The value of a word is just the product of the values for the letters.
The puzzle is to find as many words as possible each of whose product is exactly one million. Each word must be in a different language and must be a word in a respected dictionary for that language.
Any word you use must contain only the letters a to z. If a language has other letters as well that is fine, you just can't use them in the word. You can ignore accents however.
You must use a different word in each language.
You must not write computer code to find the words. This rule is obviously impossible to enforce so it will involve trust. Please do explain how you found any words you got.
Your score is just the number of different languages.
