Their result for The Word Origin Test ...

Knowledgable

Several or many correct

Congratulations, you did pretty well!  You probably only missed the etymologies that involved a subtle connection from one word to the next.  These tend to adapt an old meaning to fit a new meaning, rather than merely making changes in spelling or pronunciation.  But in my opinion these are really the most interesting, so you might be curious enough to go back through the test and check your work!

Language classes and good-old-fashioned checking the dictionary will further improve your skills.  Also, you can retake the test and pay attention to the hints.  All of the hints are good general tips, and some of them are particularly important for the question that they immediately follow.

I hope you enjoyed the test.  Please rate this test, and I hope you enjoyed it enough to rate the test highly!
