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.

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.
