Words on Wednesday: What Does Eleemosynary Mean, Anyway?

I came across this vocabulary quiz in my wanderings today.

I got 74 correct, but I'll admit that:

1) I had to guess more than a few; and
2) if the definitions hadn't been given there were plenty more I would never be able to define on my own.

How will you do?

(Note: I got 71%, because I guessed wrong more than once on a few.)

67% here! And boy, when I was wrong, I was really really wrong. If I didn't know it, the answer almost always ended up being the third one I tried.

61% here! :-(

Those were really big words. :-)

I got 68%. So many of the words were ones I recognized from vocabulary words, but after awhile, I just got tired... just like in school.

Featherbee -- same happened to me on several words. I was counting the number of words I got right, and not paying attention to the percentage that the site displayed.

Fran and Alkeda, yes, and yes!

That was too fun (I'm a Word Nerd) -- I got about 75% (I clicked "next" before I looked for sure, but I was averaging that all along). About what you had . . .

Thanks!

*cough* 95% *cough*

Should have been 100%, but I'm very tired, frustrated and distracted this evening...
