I got considerably less than everyone else at 25300 - and 25000 of those are variations on shit, cunt, fuck and bugger.  I suppose that proves the view that people who swear profusely do so due to a lack of vocabulary. 

I got just over 27,000.

Meaningless bollocks.

Preface: as an 8th grade student I tested at or quite near college level for every skill....except for English-vocabulary which I tested at a 4th grade level, to which I laughed. As if.
I think I just get asked words I don't know on these tests. I used to be quite good at crossword puzzles and even better at Scrabble, two activities requiring the best of vocabularies.

Alas.... 29,900, slightly below average of about 31500 for my age group. So nothing new here.
And if any of you claim to know 'valetudinarian' (and used it) you may kindly fuck off.
29,900 I feel like a wog. How come they didn't ask 'wog'?

I'm a barbarian, so I didn't expect much. I suppose 36,300 is as good as it gets.

36,600 for me, which appears to be above average for native English speakers. I missed out a few on the second list that I have seen before, but couldn't think of a definition. And some of them I have never seen before.

I wasn't sure whether to put this in this thread or the English language one.  Estimate how many words you know
