Attention Word Nerds! A New Way to Kill Time

By the conclusion of the week, don’t you usually perceive a deficit in your everyday vernacular? Well, if you have the allotted leisure time, maybe you can cultivate a more scopious vocabulary! (This post brought to you by Thesaurus.com.)

If you’re a Scrabble champion or linguistic junkie who needs to kill the last few minutes of work, then Downloadsquad has found a great little gift for you on the Internet called Knoword, which quizzes you by providing a definition and the first letter of a word. You start with a minute, and with each correct answer, you buy yourself additional time as well as badges for “word streaks” (a number of words without having to skip a word you don’t know). Sign up for the free membership to keep track of your score.

Hmmm … late Friday afternoon … possibly got a holiday party on your mind … ehhhhh, who’s gonna know?
