Spelling is a taboo subject for some people. We all have a few examples of acquaintances who just don’t seem to have the spelling ‘gene’ and routinely mix up simple words like “they’re” and “there” or spell phonetically instead of correctly.

Those people are going to do pretty poorly on this quiz… The fact is, almost everyone will do poorly, because this is TOUGH. You have to be more than your average awesome speller to ace this.

Your goal is to spell the word that is defined within the quotations in each question. This test may contain obscure words that you might not have heard of, so be careful! Let’s see how good you are!
