  1. 11 out of 13. Interesting quiz Norman! I have dyslexia so it confused me a bit on the questions I got wrong. I get dessert and desert confused with each other but that was 1 of the questions I got right with the word applying to Abandon.

  2. All correct! Did you hear about the headteacher in Utah who sacked one of his staff because they proposed to teach a class about homophones? His grounds were that he did not want any “gay” teaching in his school!

  3. I got number 11 wrong, trying to answer too quickly.. Hey I want to ask about abandoning desserts… I should do this more often. hahaha. I have abandoned property right now in the desert if you are interested.. great quiz here.

    • First of all, well done, Roberta! I didn’t realise that phrase wasn’t used in America. It’s standard in regular English, where the device for doing it is called a parer 🙂 We also call it a sharpener, which I’m guessing you use too 😀
