Care to work on your definition? Want to flex your williwaw at Tamarama this spring? Aiming to dazzle the next dinner party with a sound knowledge of fuliginous? Then here’s your opportunity – with the online Vocab Tester, as tested on erudite hamsters and my gallant self.
Lucked upon this quick quiz yesterday, which could be quicker if you got to tick just the words you didn’t know… But the hoops are worth the jumping through, as the test’s finale estimates the words you carry in your head. Or cranium. Or capitulum.
Based on a corpus of 45,000 words – with a random sampling of 120 for you to confront – this data-catcher is an initiative of an American-Brazilian research project, a surefire way to figure out your parlays from your pabulums. (PS – I’ll show you my vocab total, if you show me yours….)
Any other word-quiz – or vocab sites – we should know about? Share the mania here.
