100 Most Common English Words

Found this last night.

I got 33 out of 100. Post a comment with your score.

  1. 39... and I lost about 30 seconds to an incoming phone call ;-) Still, by the end, I was pretty much stumped and I spent the last 15 seconds staring at the screen. Amazing how you can draw a blank on so many obvious simple words.

  2. 46. It's interesting to just look all over the screen for common terms while you're filling it out.

    It's also wild that "no" is in the list but "yes" is not. :-)
