A Loss for Words?

Take this quiz to see how many of the 100 most common words you know.   It's harder than you think.  I got 43.

Because I am an English teacher, people automatically have higher expectations of me. I don't want to disappoint. But I do not feel comfortable revealing my score. However, I memorized most of the words I didn't get so I can answer this question right next time I am challenged.

D'Arcy, I thought of you when I posted this quiz.

I blame my score on the fact that I was thinking of much bigger words than all the pronouns and prepositions that were called for!

yeah, it took me awhile to figure out what kinds of words i should be inputting, and then when i did, i couldn't think of any. i only got 23.

that said, i'm really surprised me and yes weren't part of the top 100.

I thought the same thing about some of the missing words. The list included there but not here. And included him but not her. Weird!

Yeah, I only got 38. Also surprised that "please" and "thank you" weren't on there.

Hey ans, I'm excited to try this quiz. So I've notice that you're a bit of a blogspert (blog expert) and I'm wondering if you can tell me how you put MP3's on your blog. I've got a few that I'd like to add and I'm at a loss... totally missing Portland these days!

girl...I"m not trying to one up (or 4 up) anyone, but I totally got a 47. I only say this because I consider myself terrible at these games and have to embrace success when I get it. Thanks!

That was fun. I only got 44. I kept re-typing "I" and I think the game was getting sick of it.
