Test your … weird vocabulary

Source: dynamo.dictionary.com

dictionary.com remains my favorite online dictionary – not only because it contains definitions from several different dictionaries and details etymology, but also because they have a sense of fun. The English language is wonderfully quirky, especially when it comes to its vocabulary, and while it is so often the target of complaint from native and non-native speakers both, it is also no small source of fun.

This little flashcard game celebrates that, giving you a 12-question vocabulary quiz on words that you are never very likely to use in any conversation; words like ort, flibbertigibbet, gobo and slumgullion.

If you think your English vocabulary is well-rounded, try it out for yourself and see how you score.
