How big is your vocabulary?

My sister sent this vocabulary test over the holidays, and our family went nuts for it. Since I know a bunch of you are word nerds, too, I wanted to share it...

Take the quiz here, and leave your score below!

P.S. Can you read emotions?

What fun! Passing this test on right away. I know approximately 34,100 words. And now I know a few more, thanks to looking up the words I didn't know. I do read A LOT, but that doesn't necessarily correlate with a large vocabulary. Cool!

Ha ha, that was fun -- 38,800. I read many books (I have a dusty house to prove it) in many subjects but never saw the majority of words in the last column, yikes. Who uses those words in ordinary conversation? I think a colleague of my husband's used "epigonic" in a sentence but he's Italian. I'm 55, Chinese descent but grew up in NY since 3yrs old. Currently living in Europe.
