Interactive Etymology Quiz
I think I had a similar score. I don’t remember the exact score.
I got 8 of 10 — blew “wiki” and “minestrone.” But what am I supposed to know from wiki? I studied linguistics in the 70s and I’m not sure wiki is in the OUD even yet.
Oddly I had an etymological night terror last night. Seriously.
I wonder what the etymology of etomology is …
Ha! You get extra points for that. Fixed now.
8 out of 10 – the wonders of guesswork.
