Generally Useless Facts – Word and Language



flcyclistFlcyclist on 06/25/2008

GenerallyUselessFactsWordandLanguage Photo This quiz contains some facts about words, their origins, what they mean and why we don’t let animals use them! All the information listed is current as of 2007. By the way, you might like to know that the average American has a vocabulary of 10,000 words. Those who have not completed college have a vocabulary of 5,000-7,000 words. Farm laborers have an average vocabulary of 1,600 words. Professionals have a lexiconic arsenal of approximately 15,000 verbal projectiles to unleash. The vocabulary of a Sploofuser has not yet been documented! Thanks for taking my quiz!

So there must be a difference between the most commonly "used" language and the most commonly "spoken" language, because I'm pretty sure the most commonly spoken language is Mandarin Chinese.
