  • OK I got 100% because I am educated and English but today I made several spelling mistakes. 1. Practice (noun) when it should have been Practise (verb), onto instead of unto, defense instead of defence. By the way could you spread it around that 'you are' is shortened to you're not your which means something completely different. Hemorrhage is the American way but looks totally wrong to an English person. So much so it gives me diarrhoea or oesophageal convulsions.

  • You have another word misspelled. Or maybe it is spelled correctly according to your rules. In which case, I am misspelling it! lol According to the way I learned it in my American English spelling classes, however, I am spelling it correctly. :) I don't cheat so I didn't look in your Oxford dictionary or any other dictionary. It was fun though. Well, actually, it wasn't but I recognize that it is YOUR test. Good luck with other quizzes. :)

  • This had a lot of mistakes. You should also consider putting up one for those who do not speak British English (a heavy majority of GoToQuiz users). I was surprised, because I got 67%- yet I received multiple verbal awards on my SATs, Spelling Bee nominations, etc. However it was a relatively good quiz.

  • Oohh, sparkle 264, where did I put that? The verb "spell" is one of a number of verbs where older irregular forms exist for the past tense (that is "-t" rather than "ed").

    Generally, these forms are dropping out of English, but the process has gone further in US English than in UK English. So in the USA, "spelt" is rare enough that most people view it as wrong, but in the UK the two forms coexist. And the spelling mistake in the intro is ? intonsus

  • Ha ha - I knew the differences between English English and american English would cause a problem. I assure that haemorrhage and misspelled, in the Oxford English dictionary are both correct... Ce la vie. In an American English spelling test I am sure I would be absolutely rubbish mprovancial

  • It did have the correct spelling for 'haemorrhage'. If you read the directions before taking the quiz, it specifically states that the British spellings are considered the 'correct' answers.

  • You seriously spelled most of these wrong, like the last one and many others, this quiz is completely inaccurate, nonsensical and preposterous. I consider serious revision.

  • You do know that you can just highlight and see which one has a definition to know which one is the actual one right? (I only did that to some words I've never before, which is very few).

  • In the beginning of the quiz it was written 'English' version of English - not American. This is the true spelling in the UK. Please check the Oxford dictionary website

  • Did anyone notice? This quiz did not have the correct spelling of hemorrhage to choose from in the multiple choice so I just chose the closest-to-correct spelling which was spelled haemorrhage. My score was 92.

  • Now I am convinced you have another misspelling in your list of words, because 'haemorrhage' is not the correct spelling of 'hemorrhage'. Maybe you need a proofreader. Just saying.

  • Here I was expecting difficult words...

    To rwoo2102, you're both right and wrong. The one spelling is the American spelling, and the other is British.

    Slightly better than half but still a little way from a 'great' score. Keep at it and you will be at the next level before you know it!

    Wow, I really didn't do that good.

  • Some of these are wrong. I got everything but it only said 75%. Everything except the last one--it's hemorrhage. Wrong answers but great quiz.

  • Also I got a 95%. Your quiz isn't that hard. The only one I had trouble on was hemorage or whatever that was. I'm only in the fifth grade. Also, what the heck is an Oxford Dictionary.

  • You have some misspelled words. Please... -_- I can't actually tolerate these kind of things. It drives me crazy seeing wrong spelling and grammar.

  • Some of these are wrong... "diarrhea" is correct and it's "rhythmn" with the N. I'm a music nerd. Hemorrhage was spelled wrong... spell check/ auto correct can be a blessing and a curse.

  • This person can's even spell themselves. ha! the last question its suppose to be "Hemorrhage". They need to spell check next time, before submitting the test.

  • The correct diarrhea according to the quiz is wrong. It is impossible to get higher than 92 without cheating.

  • 75%

    Now we're talking. Nearly the 'full shilling (or is that schiling)'. But well done. These are not the easiest words to spell

  • Sparkles 264 - The Oxford Dictionary is the 'English' standard from which we are taught English in the UK :)
