    On the contrary, you have many. All you have to do now is get them in the right order.

    I have just a few more, it seems, but I can't use them all at once.

    Did anyone find the quiz a bit strange at times? I was stumped for much longer than I should have by the first question because I kept looking for something like "compassion" as a synonym for "love", haha.*

    Well, I am old and my memory isn't what it once was... My vocabulary, on the other hand, seems just fine. Yes, the test was a bit Amerocentric. (I am allowed to make up words. The test said so.)

    I've had an entire career as an English teacher. It would have been a pretty poor show if I hadn't managed a decent score. You can probably add up better than I can.

    That's made me feel a bit better, I mean I read quite a bit, such as newspaper articles, books etc but I've never come across any of the words after like the 30 mark
