Word Geekery

“One forgets words as one forgets names. One’s vocabulary needs constant fertilizing or it will die.” ~Evelyn Waugh

I might have posted this link years ago, but it’s still a great site for word-geeks. Free Rice is a multiple choice vocabulary “game” that, as you play, generates money from banner ads to donate rice to the World Food Program. The words get easier or harder depending on your vocabulary level. It’s fun, like the multiple-choice section of the SATs!

    Really cool game, but it gets really hard around level 45. I finally started cheating by copying the words into my dictionary.com search bar. I’d feel bad, but I only cheated to feed the kids. :)

    Think of the children. The children!

    Plus, looking things up is good learning.
