Yeah, it's a good thing it wasn't timed. I stopped about 3 times and went off and did something else.

Says it's "0". That can't be good.

Actually that's because it didn't work in Microsoft Edge. Did it in Chrome, got 30,051, top 0.01%.

You can accurately test your own. There are 225,000 definitions in the Merriam Webster Collegiate. Leaf through on random pages, and count the fifth definition from the top of each page. If you know 40% of those words, your vocabulary is 90,000 words -- presuming you are honest with yourself.


Everyone has two vocabularies -- the words you know when you see them, and the smaller list of words you can pull out of your mind to use when speaking or writing. I think a high school kid goes his entire summer vacation on about 200 words.

My vocabulary is among the smallest in this thread, but I'm still doing better than more than 90% of the population? The test isn't scientific at all.
