The English vocabulary test released by Ghent University is an interesting online resource that both gives users an idea of the extent of their vocabulary and provides researchers with valuable data relating to native speaking. As opposed to many other vocabulary tests that assess whether or not people know the definition of a given word, the English vocabulary test from Ghent University asks users to rate whether or not the word on screen is part of the English language.
The test consists of 100 total words. Of these, 67 are real English words and 33 are fake words that are constructed by an algorithm to resemble English words. The test shows users one word at a time, and it asks them to simply answer "yes" or "no" as to whether the word is real.
