English Words and Meanings Quiz #1
I have subscribed to Merriam Webster's Word of the Day for several years to help increase my vocabulary. Whenever I come across a word I don't know or am unsure of I make a note of it.

Making the multiple choice quiz was a lot of fun, especially trying to create plausible wrong answers to confuse you all. I hope you enjoy.

The site will ask you for Name and E-mail, I made up both and it still let me in.
If you put your TTA name we can all see what you score!

*Merriam ... Make a note of it.

Check out my now-defunct atheism blog. It's just a blog, no ads, no revenue, no gods.

Just for that I took the test for you.

You got 0/10

**Edit: Ok, now I'm sorry I did that. Let it be known that WH score is my doing. Not as funny as I envisioned. Sorry WH.

It froze the first time I took it

I knew like 4 words. Lol. I'm good at guessing.

Swing with me a while, we can listen to the birds call, we can keep each other warm.
Swing with me forever, we can count up every flower, we can weather every storm.

"a retarded pervert" made me chuckle.

I guessed the saxi-thingy from a possible similarity to 'saxifrage'.

All those scrabble years have finally paid off.

I want more Drooling

I'm very impressed. I have a long list, maybe enough to make 6-8 tests. I had to work at coming up with wrong meanings though, it took some effort to make sure they were the same part of the sentence as the correct answer.

The retarded pervert was an inspiration Tongue
