The Search for Meaning Continues...
You passed, but just barely, since you got less than half of the answers right. You have some basic knowledge of rare words in the English language, but there is room for improvement. We recommend spending a bit more time reading books, that's the best way to learn more words. After all, the way we talk and think is predicated on our vocabulary. Having more ways to express ourselves is always a wonderful thing.
You Did Well!
Great! You've answered most of the questions correctly, proving you have a good grasp of what these words mean, even though some of them are used quite rarely these days. You have great verbal skills and probably a heck of a good memory.
Piece of Cake For You...
Wow, you really have an extensive lexicon, don't you? You must read a lot! Or maybe you used to read a lot, and you still recall. In any case, your knowledge of the English language is significantly more extensive and impressive than most people's, especially these modern days, where text messaging has shortened even common words! Share your result with friends and family - we're proud of you!
