About This Quiz

Do you think that your English vocabulary skills are truly top notch? Due to the unique history of English and its roots in Greek, Latin, Germanic languages and more, many experts think that the English language might have more words than any other language. From common everyday slang to the kind of words you would only see on the SATs, there is so much more to English than meets the eye. The majority of English speakers only use a very small fraction of the language's many words. 

English is also one of the most used international languages, which means it has picked up and adopted many words from other languages, is spoken differently in dozens of countries, and is changing all the time. Any given adjective could potentially have dozens of synonyms. Sometimes, even the same word can change meaning over time, without anything else about it changing. A changing language can be a lot to keep up with, but any true vocabulary master knows just what to do. 

If you are a language lover who knows the many wacky and wonderful words of the English language like the back of your hand, put your brainpower to the ultimate test with this wordy quiz!
