NOTES: I have the requirement that the words MUST BE IN THE TOP 25K OVERALL ENGLISH WORDS to be in this quiz. The word frequency is taken from the Google Books corpus – a very wide ranging English corpus with books from many subjects some up to centuries old. It is NOT a LEMMA word list – meaning different forms of a word are counted SEPARATELY – ie. “be” and “are” are separate, as are “book” and “books.” As the corpus has many sequences that aren’t actually words I only allowed words that were on the TWL06 Internet Scrabble Club word list (under TWL here: http://www.isc.ro/en/commands/lists.html) or in the Oxford English Dictionary for words over 15 characters (TWL06 list doesn’t have words that long).

    The “50 Hardest” and “50 Missed” aren’t displaying for me after I complete the quiz.

      could be from the technical books/etc where it is used under a picture as an abbreviation for ‘figure’
