Dictionary Fun Online

I just took the Oxford Dictionaries' interactive etymology quiz. See how well you do...but you can only take it once because it's the same set of questions.

You can also answer a few questions and find out which classical character you are (I'm Medea).

You can try out a real Turing test (and if you don't know what that means, this site will explain it first.) This one really excited me; I've long wanted to try a Turing test and see if I could tell the diff. But it wasn't all that interesting in practice. Sigh.

There are a bunch more interactive quizzes, featuring Jane Austen's work, Shakespeare, Dickens, etc. See them all here.
