We count headword entries in a standard English dictionary. This means the standard word derivations are not counted (for example, "quickly," derived from "quick," does not count as a separate word). & while compound words are counted (like "air conditioning"), phrases & expressions are not (like "food for thought").

Why bởi vì I have to click so many checkboxes? Can"t you check them all by default, và then I uncheck the words I don"t know?

The chạy thử works in two steps. The first step contains 40 words which determine your rough level—do you have the vocabulary of a 3-year-old or a 20-year-old? Since we don"t know who you are, we can"t assume you"ll kiểm tra most of the boxes. Then, with the approximate level determined, the second step shows around 120 words in four columns, which are selected in the general area around where we think your vocabulary màn chơi is. If we guessed perfectly, the first column should be almost entirely words you know, the last column should be almost entirely words you don"t know, and the middle two columns should be a gradient between the two. If we didn"t guess perfectly, we still have a good buffer to give you an accurate result. So some users will find they kiểm tra more boxes overall, and others will leave more unchecked, so we leave the mặc định to be unchecked. Of course, if you"re a linguistic genius and know all the words, then there"s nothing we can do, and you"ll just have to exercise your finger more!
The words seem to jump quickly from really easy khổng lồ really hard. Shouldn"t you have a smoother transition for more accurate measurement?

They jump from easy to lớn hard because that"s where the limit of your vocabulary is. It"s not a feature of our test, it"s a feature of vocabulary learning. & while it might seem to lớn you that all the easy words are equally easy, we can assure you that other people would disagree.
There are many different factors that go into measuring someone"s vocabulary size—for example, vì you count "quick" & "quickly" as two words or just one? After all, "quickly" is just a simple and predictable derivation of "quick." Depending on how different questions like these are decided, vocabulary tests can give widely different results. We take a conservative approach & count the number of headwords (not derived words) which you are estimated lớn know in a standard dictionary. In the end, what really matters is not your absolute number, but rather your score relative khổng lồ others who take the same test, no matter how the thử nghiệm is put together. For more details, read in-depth about how the vocab kiểm tra works.
Your results seem high—I"m well-educated and well-read, and I"m pretty sure my vocabulary is in a higher percentile than the results you"ve listed!

You"re probably right. The percentiles listed so far are of the people who have taken the quiz, not of the population as a whole. & their average self-reported verbal SAT score, so far, is around 700 (out of a perfect 800 score). Compare that lớn the average US population score of around 500, và it"s clear that our test-takers are far more literate than average. As the number of participants increases, there should be more data to separate out percentiles based on different self-reported SAT scores, for example, và we"ll be able khổng lồ use this to generate comparison scores that are more representative of the population as a whole.

You can see overall relative English levels by country in this blog post. Based on our own experience, we can give you a general idea of foreign language acquisition for students enrolled in private English courses (generally meeting for around 3 hours a week): 1,500–3,000 words: a couple of years of English courses 4,000–6,000 words: intermediate English (4–6 years) 8,000–10,000 words: advanced English (8 years) for a particularly good student Anything much beyond 10,000 words generally only comes from living abroad in an English-speaking country for a significant period of time, or else spending tremendous amounts of one"s own time exposed to lớn English truyền thông media (books, sitcoms, movies, etc.).
All our frequency information came from Adam Kilgarriff"s analysis of the British National Corpus. You"ll probably want the lemma.num file, for the first 6,000 or so words. If you"re looking for more advanced English, you"ll probably want the all.num.o5 file, which contains more than 200,000 entries (although many of them are redundant).
Because honestly, there really aren"t any more generally-used words than that. The Oxford English Dictionary may menu 300,000 words, but after 45,000, they"re pretty much all either archaic, scientific/technical, or otherwise inapplicable lớn any kind of "general" vocabulary test. In fact, finding such general words beyond 35,000 was a real challenge.
Your vocabulary count has a margin of error of approximately ±10%. We also round results above 10,000 to the nearest 100, and results above 300 lớn the nearest 10.
Yes. However, the wordlist we use stays relatively the same, each time you take the test. So if you look up any words you"re being tested on, during or after the test, then future thử nghiệm results will be artificially high, & will no longer be accurate. So if you"d lượt thích to use this thử nghiệm to track your vocabulary growth, we recommend only taking it once per year at the most, và only if you"re very careful never lớn look up or ask about words you saw on the test.
We"d lượt thích to eventually, but there"s an awful lot of work involved in creating a word danh mục that is scientifically accurate because it has lớn be built on vị trí cao nhất of solid data. Specifically, for any language, we need to lớn find: An available corpus, with both a sufficiently large spoken component (for accurately measuring lower vocabulary levels) & written component (for higher levels), with sufficient variety in source material A reliable automatic method for "uninflecting" corpus words into dictionary words — e.g., turning "cupcakes" into "cupcake", và "wrote" into "write", so they don"t count as separate words An electronically available comprehensive dictionary, which can be used lớn filter out proper nouns and non-words from the corpus A native speaker with a programming or data background, who can implement all this accurately, và then go through lớn manually select appropriate testing words, according to various criteria
