Interesting and fun Phenomena in Engish Language



rael61Rael61 on 05/22/2007

InterestingandfunPhenomenainEngishLanguage Photo For all its pervasiveness, English can be one wacky language. This quiz will describe and give examples of strange phenomena that occur in English, and you have to select the word for the phenomena.

Look at the two images on the left. The first question deals with them.

Many thanks to funwithwords.com for background information and a couple noncopyrighted sites (credited within individual questions) for examples in the public domain.

Great quiz! Seen them, probably used them, but didn't know exactly what they were called. Learned a lot. Thanks.

I loved this quiz. I think it is absolutely essential as an added bonus to give advance warning when an annual anniversay of this unique original quiz arises in the exact same or different variation occurs for nonreading illiterates to fill in the missing gaps for a final showdown, although they should be killed dead.

Its also excellently great that you didn't include cliches in the quiz as they should be avoided like the plague.

Cheers,
