Glad that you did, Sarah!
Eddie, nice of you to share the site, very kind of you.
By the way, when it comes to tests, I have never seen them explained before...I mean, how they designed the test itself.
This one has this area http://testyourvocab.com/about.php wich explains who devised the so called "tool".
So, "TestYourVocab.com is part of an independent American-Brazilian research project to measure vocabulary sizes according to age and education, and particularly to compare native learning rates with foreign language classroom learning rates." Very interesting indeed, I am proud of it! hehe.
Crawling within http://testyourvocab.com/details.php I learned that:
You may ask—is it really necessary to exclude so many words? Shouldn't being able to figure out "unhappy" count as knowing the word? Well, this brings us to a final distinction: receptive vocabulary (the words we understand, but don't/can't use) versus productive vocabulary (the words we use in speaking and writing).
Nice concepts, these ones of receptive and productive vocabulary!
