The Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT,) that hurdle which nearly every college-bound senior must face, is composed of two sections, math and language skills. While many students tend to prefer math, and perform better on that section, it's often vocabulary that will remain more essential in our day-to-day lives. It helps determine whether or not we ace our job interviews or just impress the people we meet. It's perfectly acceptable to say, "Sorry, I just can't do math." Most people will be sympathetic. But when you misuse words, people draw conclusions about your intelligence.
For this reason, if your vocabulary has never been your strong suit, it's in your best interest to brush-up on it. Maybe it's time to learn the difference between "extant" and "extent," or that "noisome" does not mean "loud" (it means "dirty" or "objectionable.") It's time to learn the true meaning of "liberal" and "conservative" which have meanings that precede politics.
If you're ready to fill the lacunae (gaps) in your vocabulary, or show off your puissance (power) in this area, then we've got a quiz for you!
