26,200 eh not too bad. I did have higher expectations though. Anyone know how many words are in the average dictionary? It would be interesting to know what percentage of a dictionary i would know.

Upon further research, looks like its estimated to be a quarter of a million. Hmm i only know 9.5% of the words in the dictionary. Now my answer does not look nearly as awesome.

Plenty of words I've seen before, but couldn't use in a sentence if you asked me. Funny, how many times you can read a word without thinking to look it up and reaffirm its meaning. On that note, I'm off to Google prurient and caitiff.

I'm skeptical, if only because I don't know how much my SAT Score was factored in. I got a perfect score, but I'm really, really good at taking standardized tests, and not nearly as good at general academics overall  :-[

As a side note, I always find it difficult to categorize myself with questions like, "which language is your native language?" English isn't my first language, and it isn't (always) the language that I think in, but it's the more proficient of my two (three if you include dialects), so it's hard to say. -__-
This is me too.  I got 28,200 words.

Amusing How many of the words I knew because of fantasy literature, doom metal, and an interest in historic clothing. Like Tatterdemalion, Epigone, and Oneiromancy
