Someone shared this with me yesterday - I have shared it with the younger ones in my house, who have tested their knowledge of word meanings against it, with varying scores... 

If you get ten mins, try it out - no pressure to share your scores here, of course... But knowing how FFF our regulars and some newcomers are, well, I guess the gauntlet could be thrown down💪

Not telling you my (genuine attempt!) score just yet, let you make your mind up if it is baloney, rigged or chance. 

The third screen asks for demographic info - if you have honestly answered, I think they would appreciate the info too, if you care to enter it. 

Have fun!

The blurb says a native English speaker has a vocabulary between 20K and 35K, so you're in with a shout, @Anonymous 👍

Not sure if Pfffft counts as a susurration or an exclamation though 🤔

Just done it.
Some words I had no clue, but knew most.
I'm at the upper end of the spectrum...

In the words of the White Rabbit...

“I’m late, I’m late! For a very important date! No time to say ‘hello, goodbye,’ I’m late, I’m late, I’m late!”

ie, On here, checking Asda order, checking bank statements (in vain) to see if payment has been taken (It hasn't) and checking (from a distance) that son number 2 is PRUNING bushes in the garden and not following in the footsteps of his Dad ...by razing them to the ground!!

I'm in the conservatory. He is in the garden. I gave him his instructions yesterday via Messenger and text.

It's awful when I know what needs doing and my husband and both sons wouldn't know a dandelion from Clematis or Boston Ivy rofl
