i liked it but to easy I just made a new tab and typed in the words and got 7/7 of course to easy lol
NICE. U R GOOD@! HAHEHAH
Well this one seem to get easy as it went along.
this is ridiculous
OK 6/7 KEEP WORKING!!!
Wow!, got 5 out of 7, not bad enough for a non-english speaker.
Same here great job!
I know “taradiddle” from the G&S musical Iolanthe – set perfectly, and tauntingly, to music by Sullivan. Interestingly, the word ‘equanimity’ is featured in one of the songs as well.
Never heard of it
Thanks for the quiz it was very interesting
7/7! It’s a good day!
7 out of 6 – pretty good right?
Don’t you mean 6 out of 7 not 7 out of 6?
First time doing it and got 6/7 right! Love this quiz!
My first time, didn’t realize if you get the answer wrong, it turns pink until number 6! ~LOL
i got all correct
Very interesting , 1st Time Doing This , Thanks I Have To Say This Was Amazing .
Five right. Not too shabby. ; )
Why not include words from other languages besides Yiddish such as e.g. schadenfreude, babushka, debacle, potpourri, taiga, ukase, zeitgeist, kitsch, matryoshka, zugszwang?
Got 7/7 first time! Last three were more challenging. I love etymology, so even though I haven’t heard most of these words, I was able to make some sense of them. Not to say I am a professional or an etymologist, but I love putting my knowledge to the test!
I love etymology, too! That’s how I was able to get them right. Have you read Word Power Made Easy? Love that book.
Got one wrong……
Me too, but how do you figure out which one it was?
wow me to
Refreshing I like the quiz keeps me on my toes.
6/7 is ever better than last time!!
I love words and word – smiths.
I love knowing how to express myself clearly and as I speak for I want whomever is reading what I wrote to know immediately that those are my thoughts.
English is a second language for me and what little I know of it, I’ve taught myself for I skipped 8th, 9th, 10th and half of the eleventh grade when I went to the States.
Yet I managed by the mere strength of my desire to graduate from UCLA with a BA in Political Science.
Congratulations!! Your accomplishments are outstanding and well-deserved, for all the time & hard work you put in to get them. Your determination, dedication and thirst for knowledge are inspirational to people of all ages and cultures, but particularly to other ESLs. Two Thumbs Up, my friend!!!
I look forward to the Word of the Day each morning and have ‘tagged’ many as favorites. In order to actually review, learn and ultimately use these new words, it would be highly useful to be able to export my favorites (and their definitions) – maybe by email?
I loved this weeks word quiz, and I’m going to try to use some of those words in my writing. Thank you dictionary.com
Quite interesting and informative for all ages. Thank you
Enjoyed .keep them coming I would like to be able to repeat so that I can work toward getting all the meanings correct
How about a daily quiz?
You can take this weeks quiz as many times as you want if you just go to the homepage. Hope this was helpful:)
