If you have already taken the Vocabulary Word quizzes Part 1: The Explosion of Words Begins and Part 2: Stretching the Brain with Words, then you are quickly coming to understand just how deep of a vocabulary bank you are required to have. It’s also a time when you can start to really impress others with your vocabulary usage.
For this quiz (Part 3), as well as in Part 4: Feeling Comfortable using those Big Words, you will be tested on your ability to see a new word used in a sentence and then see if you can locate its true or appropriate meaning in the four definitions provided. You might want to look back at the English quiz, Determining the Meaning of Unfamiliar Words, as it will be a good refresher in understanding just how to work out or figure out the meaning of a new word as it is used in the context of a sentence.
It’s really a lot easier than you might first imagine. There are a list of ten sentences given below. Each sentence has a new vocabulary word that is underlined. Four possible definitions are then given. If you feel you are ready to tackle the new vocabulary words then let’s begin the quiz. Don’t rush it though. See what words you can use to replace the underlined word. This is often a hint as to what the word actually means. Once you find a definition that you believe fits, then move on to the next sentence. Ready…begin![/readmore/
