Are These English Words Of Greek Or Indian Origin?

Are you ready to show off your vast English knowledge? In continuation with our series of quizzes featuring the origins of English words adopted from various languages, this quiz will throw the spotlight on words with either Greek or Indian roots. You may be surprised at the large number of Greek and Indian words that have infiltrated the modern English we speak today! Even if you've never taken a single foreign language lesson, you kind of already speak other languages.

This quiz will test your ability to identify the original language of various words. Before you begin, make sure to clear your mind. When you see the word we present, make sure to trust your instincts. We haven't tried to be tricky on purpose, but a language is a tricky thing all on its own! How well will you do? Proceed when ready.
