W7 Tech: A quick quiz on word use

Hilary Sinfield’s Week 7 Quiz Results

I managed to achieve 100 percent on my first attempt at this quiz. This result is probably because I got a promotion today, or, maybe I got my promotion because of my strong understanding of word use.

This quiz has been by far the easiest quiz to date. I quickly moved through the questions and did not need to refer back to the textbook once.

I enjoy this type of study of word use. Not because I appear to have a natural flare for it but because I am intrigued by the way old sayings have developed. I am also continually interested in how the American use of English is slowly changing the British use.

I wonder if there will be much change in English usage in the next 10 years with the continual rise of social media?
