I scored 4/7. I can just about live with that, unless everyone else gets 6 or 7!

I'm looking forward to that film, Synedoche. I suppose I should go and look up what "synedoche" means. And maybe read the dictionary in preparation...

I got 7. I guessed the first. I knew the others but hey, I don't count, as some of those words are used quite often in my language.
I have more trouble with phrasal verbs :)

Edit: Oh by the way, I think synedoche is a figure of speech.

I got 5 right. I can live with that. Most of them you could figure out from latin words.
I <3 Latin.

I only got 4/7 but I dont really care either. Those are not commonly used words in English and if you chose to use them, most people would not know what you are trying to say. Anyone can pull out a dictionary and learn a word that few people know. I think I have a rather good vocabulary; a test on the internet is not going to change that.

I got 5, really surprised I got that many right as I was second guessing myself on almost all of them. It helps that there are only 3 possible answers for each Q.
