Our Qwizard players have been challenged on 38 of the hardest words in the English language. The questions were multi-choice, with three wrong answers delivered alongside the correct answer. The teams were asked to identify the best synonym or the most accurate meaning of some of the most obscure words in the dictionary.

The attached chart shows the rate of incorrect answers, according to the analysis of our collected answers. These were the lowest correct scores across all 38 questions. The low score may indicate that either a word in not recognised at all, or that the word is misunderstood.

Do you know the meaning of ‘coruscate’? Is your understanding of a simple word like ‘decadent’ correct?

The average result across the 38 questions was 63.9%, which is closely aligned to our overall quiz results.
