How many words do you think you know?

Asked by MrGrimm888 (16809points) September 6th, 2016

I feel like if I had to sit down and write every word I know,I would keep thinking of words I haven’t written. Language is SO complex. Many words are to precisely articulate what you are thinking. But we must know thousands of words.

Ball park figure. How many words do you think you know?

Over 10,000.

More than the average, but less than all.

Probably at least one or two thousands.

More educated you are, more words you know.

And that is only if we assume I speak only one language.
