I blame Neil Gaiman for me knowing that one.

Your total vocabulary size is estimated to be: 34,500 words.

But I think they made up some of those words to check if people were just BS'ing the test
I've looked up several of those words, after the test.. they are all legitimate.. just obscure and limited in use.

Felt really good until the last two columns. Found myself googling a few to make sure they were actual words.

Well, just because I know what the words meant, doesn't mean I ever use them in conversation. xD

There's a ton of words on those lists I knew but I don't use them in conversation.  Heck I probably don't even use half of them in writing.

I decided to give this another go and see what result comes up this time around. I had 37.800, which is about 6000 more than last time. A lot of it depends on what words come up on the list.

Just remember:  English waylays other languages in back alleys and goes through their pockets for spare vocabulary.

Indeed, the sheer number of words I've seen in that list that come from French, German and even one that has the same ancestor as Dutch. And I'm not even a linguist so I don't want to know how many they can pick out and trace. But, such is the nature of an adaptable, learning language.

Just above foreigners and way below English native speakers. Not sure how to feel about that.

 42, 200 wuuurrds! Yaaaaay! I did a lot better than I thought. Admittedly I thought I would fail miserably. It does a good job of making you think, and feeling dumb. Ha ha.
