Words beginning with D


Here is the latest in my “words beginning with” quizzes.

The idea behind this game is not to embarrass you by uncovering your ignorance of English vocabulary, but to challenge you to work out what the correct meaning is likely to be.

In other words, if you know what the meaning is , that is a bonus that is certainly not expected at the outset!

  1. Another great quiz. I guessed most of them and got an even 8 if I remember well. Again there were some vague French terms here which helped me a lot to achieve that 8. Happy to see you are recovering from your nasty fall.
