Advanced knowledge of English etymology

Way to go!  You did very well, answering most or all questions and getting very few (or none) incorrect!

You got 6 points, which are calculated by adding your correct answers and subtracting incorrect answers.  If you got fewer than 10 points but enough to land in the "Expert" category I don't have any great advice to you about how to improve your skills any further, and you might even know a lot more about the etymology of the English language than I do!   If you didn't get a perfect score, you might still want to retake the test and pay more attention to the hints.  An expert like you probably does not need these hints, but even the pros make mistakes!

This test is part of the Language Test contest.  Please rate this test and any other tests you take that are part of the contest.  I hope you enjoyed it enough to give my test a high rating!  It is a contest!  If you have concrete suggestions for improving the test I would love to hear them!
