    13 out of 15 for me too. A LOT of guesswork! I have never heard anyone speak like in those sentences.

    I got 12 out of 15 earlier today- mucho guesswork here too Lynda. But 80% is above average, so I suppose that is alright. (At least that is what I tell my theatre majors when they complain about a 'B'.) I am sure would get 100%, lol! The reading he is doing in his masters program looks like a foreign language to me.

    Thanks Cin, for posting this!

    Cheers,
    BD

    Well guess I'm on the lower end of the totem pole ... only got 9 correct. A disappointing performance. Had a couple words I had never heard of before and three or four that I kept waffling between 2 choices. Ah well ...........
