Test Your Vocabulary Size

Test your vocab picHow many words do you know?

In the online lesson about English Vocabulary, there were a few activities to estimate your vocabulary size. In this blog post, I’m including a link to one other online vocabulary test. After you take the test, you can leave a comment telling us what your result was and letting us know some of the words on the test that you didn’t know before. Here are the links:

Test Your Vocab.com has a short (two-step) test to estimate your vocabulary size. The test is based on you deciding (honestly, of course!) whether or not you know words in a list.

So, what was your result? If you’re interested in finding out your teacher’s result, look in the comments below :)

Ok, well my result was 28,700 words, which is about the average for someone my age, according to the statistics on the website.
Here are some of the words I didn’t know:

uxoricide, legerdemain and imbroglio


caitiff, regnant and tatterdemalion

Yikes! I’m not sure I even want to learn those words :)

My total vocabulary size is established to be: 9 590 words. I’m not sure if at my level the result should be better or not. In the test I found so many new words and at some point I felt that there are the basic, quite common stuff that I’ve already should known but there were completely new for me. Probably it’s just mean that there’s still plenty of work to do if I want to feel more fluent in English.
Example of my new words:
hint; plank; wag; stubble; pittance; mawkish; raiment; legerdemain; uxoricide; hamper; shovel; tinker; dangle; derelict; wriggle; overt; cradle; feeble; embankment; rebuke; mayhem; rascal; manacle; disjunctive.
