You scored 35,600? Well done!! I admit to using a few more than I ticked, but couldn't think of another word which meant the same thing. SEVERAL words strung together maybe, but not ONE.....

Back to the dictionary ....

I didn't either. But, I won a dictionary in a 6th grade spelling bee and was such a voracious reader (and nerd) that I read it cover to cover during summer vacation. :shh:

I used to love reading through dictionaries and finding new words to use. English was one of my best subjects, but half of the words that we actually KNOW, are rarely used anyway - and some are disappearing completely.
