These lists and quizzes took a long time to compile (lists) and make (quizzes). The lists were pulled from four different sources; all claiming to be advanced. The problem is that some of those lists used obsolete terms. I checked every word against the Oxford English Dictionary; and I went to Dictionary.com for many of the pronunciations if they were not already listed in the book.This began basically as a dare from some of my gifted students. They complained that the words the rest of the class worked on were too easy. Aligned to Common Core State Standard: L.9-10.4

Standards

Determine or clarify the meaning of unknown and multiple-meaning words and phrases based on grades 9–10 reading and content, choosing flexibly from a range of strategies.
