    Each word begins with the word five in different languages:
    1. Gorge - Go (Japanese) 五
    2. Funfair - Fünf (German)
    3. Feminine - Fem (Danish)
    4. Pendent - Pende (Greek)
    5. Besiege - Bes (Turkish)

    Getting an answer is one thing, learning is another.

    Strictly speaking...

    'Fünf' does not begin with 'Fun' as 'ü' and 'u' are different (the Germans have more than 26 letters in their alphabet). If you do not use the letter 'ü' you would need to write it as 'ue' so the word 'Fünf' would then be 'Fuenf'.

    But hey... interesting riddle, all the same!
