Quiz: Can You Guess The Language These Words Come From?
You don’t have to have a superhuman grasp on linguistics in order to correctly guess the language you’re looking at. Most of the time, you can take an educated guess just by looking at the characters. In some cases, you might recognize, say, an Italian word thanks to your knowledge of Spanish, which is closely related.
However, we designed this quiz to be super difficult. You’ll have to correctly guess the language each word belongs to, and you’ll have three languages to choose from that are somewhat linguistically or geographically related to each other.
Are you up for the challenge?
