The English language is a very strange one. With 616,500 entries in the Oxford English Dictionary, I’d say that there are a few words you and I do not know.
Many people have only on average about 50 000 words in their vocabulary. A lot you say. But compared to the Oxford English dictionary entries, that equates to only about 8%.
So how many words do you know. Rather how many do you not know.
What you don’t want to happen is to be known by or described by some of the words listed below.
Can you come up with a few of your own?
