How big is your vocabulary?

editing_and_proofreading_blog_799Well, to be accurate, the title of this quiz is a bit misleading. It only really compares you with others who have taken the plunge.

7/15 gives you the assessment “Average. You’re pretty good with words. You probably did a solid job on the writing and language section of the SATs, didn’t you?”

15/15 moves it on to “Intelligent. You did better than 100% of those who took this quiz! You are a human thesaurus. I am in awe of your vocabulocity, and I apologize for making up the word “vocabulocity.” I’m sure it makes your skin crawl.”

Anyway, make sure you read the options carefully, as there are some subtle tricks in there.
