    They never told me whether I was average or above average or genius or anything like that. *pouts*
    Anyway, my guesstimated vocab is 22,500 words.

    @Dragon-Snapper How exactly do you spell that? Geniuses? Genius’s? Geniuss? It’s one of those bucket list questions that I know will never be answered… But whatever it is, FORWARD MARCH, FELLOW…WHATEVER!

    Okay, so I retook the test, and I got 31,300 words, because I missed some, and yet they seemed to have added some. Anyway, this has given me a topic idea…hee hee. 😛

    @ethryndal @dragon-snapper The plural form of genius is geniuses. From KP’s copy editor and grammar Nazi. ;-P

    @theliterarycrusader, isn’t it genii? (From your fellow grammar Nazi)

    And my score was somehow 40,300??? I didn’t know I knew that much.

    #25183

    @northerner Yes, that’s correct also, but geniuses is the more common form. Genii is also plural for genie.

    Just so you all know, I think the max score is somewhere around 45,000 hundred words. I was curious so I check-marked them all. ( @northerner which means you are a genius 😛 )
