Word-A-Holic Quiz Book
Did you know the average English-speaking person uses the same 400 words 80 percent of the time? That means that the over 400,000 additional words in most Standard English dictionaries are left back there collecting dust. Save the words! Each word used in this book has been carefully researched and can be found in either Webster's Third New International Dictionary (1986) or the compact edition of the Oxford English Dictionary (1971). These dictionary definitions have been slightly edited for readability and style.
