CMOS Quiz


Valkyrie

Recommended Posts

I 'follow' the Chicago Manual of Style on Facebook and every month they feature a quiz on various elements of grammar.  I find taking these quizzes quite helpful, since, while I usually get good scores, I rarely get them all correct.  I like that they let you know what questions you get wrong and provide the correct answers.  This month's quiz is on word usage, something I consider one of my strong areas.  Even so, I scored an 80%.  I thought other writers/editors might be interested in taking the quiz.

I enjoyed doing this very much. Some were very easy, others quite tricky. Thank you for sharing this link!

That was interesting. It woke my brain up. :P  Ninety percent, because of Kudos. I accept it, but don't get it. I'll say no more. :P
