love the idea of this quiz; less enthusiastic that you are asking about words in some cases I've never seen or heard before; they need to be words in common(ish) usage so we know what they mean and can infer or guess their origin. I'm willing to bet all but one or two of your takers wont have seen 3 of these words ever before.
