See & Saw. Hee & Haw. Ohhh & Ahhh. This blog is an ever-growing collection of curios, oddities, and astonishing visual treats. Honest.
my "vocab level" was at 29 when i stopped. i guess it goes to 50. not terrific, but i am quite sure that score is better than the one i got for the "vocab" portion of any standardized test i've taken over the years. it's a wonder i can communicate with people (with any level of intelligence) at all based on previous scores. ;o)
Geez that's addictive!I've donated 6000 grains of rice (and developed a craving for Chinese food along the way...) and am currently at vocab level 44. I had it up to 48 for a word or two, but then reality kicked in.Between 38 and 45 is where I hover, but I'm an English-oholic...
I'm running between 38 and 42. Got tired of playing at 200 grains....
10000 grains (any idea how much that is?) at level 47...had it up to 48 a few times, but haven't managed to crack 49...I'm hopelessly addicted.
Very impressive folks!GB and Lady are our resident geniuses. I had it up to 40 but 38 was about my average.I believe this is the acceptable kind of addiction!
I'm not sure where they're culling their definitions from, and I actively disagree with a few of the "correct" answers, but overall it's very interesting. I get the greatest pleasure out of learning about language, since it really is the window to the universe for our brains. Many of the terms (animacule - a very early term for micro organisms, intifada - an arabic term and a few others) are not commonly used in English these days. Great site.
I got 50 using my computer dictionary. But I was 37-40 with a high of 44.JDH
Here is a cool site, that explains the 'roots' of words.http://www.espindle.org/roots.html
My buddy Victor got to 49. I'm jealous.
49! Wow! I'll have to give it another try to see if I can break 42. I wonder if the questions are random. or do they re-set to the beginning every time?
I think they're random, but after a while you start seeing the same words pop up more than once....
I have a highly active boredom gene. I just can't stick with this long enough to get it above 42.....(sigh)
Ok, I'm still unable to get past 48, but my buddy Victor hit 50 a COUPLE of times! Grrr.
50! That is amazing! I tried again this morning and began with a 36, and then slowly recovered to a 40; along way 48 or 42! I'll try again once I've had my coffee...
hmmm.... The competitive male gene seems to be highly active today....:-D
Competitive? Me? Nah.I'm more not competitive than anyone!;o)
Ha! Made 49! Then it spanked me down to 45 in four turns...Have I mentioned that this thing is addictive?
