One Of These Things!Test your vocabulary by comparing a list of words and determining the word which is not a 'real' word.
Game InstructionsWhen you begin your game, you will see a list of five words. According to standard dictionaries, four of the five are real words, and one of them is not. Can you guess which word is not really a word?

The Word SourceWhere did all these words come from? Well, they were part of a very large free word list I downloaded from the internet a long time ago...the source is now completely lost to me. I knew that some of the words were a bit obscure and archaic, and I was skeptical that they were all actual words. Especially when I discovered a word like "prfer", which looks like a misspelling of "prefer", and was not in any dictionary I checked.
So I decided to double check my word list against more standard dictionaries to eliminate the words which were not found in the old stand-bys. Then I had a better idea. Instead of eliminating them, why not turn them into a game? Thus, this simple little vocabulary game was born! I hope you enjoy it.
