Whether you are perusing articles online, reading your favorite books on the Kindle, or maybe even having a casual conversation, you may come across words whose meaning you can never keep straight. Even after looking up their meanings, the right definition doesn't stick and you forget it the next time.
There are many words in the English language with definitions that can be difficult to remember. Some words seem like they have a negative element in them, but either because their positive counterpoint has fallen out of use or because it never existed in the first place, the word doesn't really have a negative sense. Other words are often confused for their opposite or have come to have connotations not quite reflected in their dictionary definitions. Either way, the language is a beautiful but also confusing one at times.
Like any language, English has its fair share of extremely tough words to remember. Test your knowledge of these common tough words, and see whether you can pick out their correct meanings!
