Mini-Quiz: Importance of a Good Vocabulary in Writing

by Ron Kurtus (revised 8 March 2012)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. If you are intelligent, why not use high-level words?

Editors often get jealous

Always use the longest word possible

Your goal is to communicate, not to show off

2. What is wrong with acronyms?

Not everyone knows what they mean

If they can't figure it out, they shouldn't be reading

Only use to get things done ASAP

3. How can word games help your writing?

They can't help, because they are just games

They stimulate the vocabulary part of your brain

They help you waste time at work

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Writing. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.

Use your writing abilities to help others understand
