I've never seen it spelled "omnipitent." But since you used the word "spelt," I'm going to venture a guess that you're not American, so maybe it's just a matter of cultural spelling. Either that or you're making a joke that went straight over my head. :-)

Omnipitent is not a word. Do you understand root words and prefixes? Omni - potent.

No, it is just pronounce omni-pitent, but it is, in fact, omnipotent.Coming the latin, omni meaning all and potent being powerful.

I hereby pronounce "omnipitent" to be a word with the meaning "all-pitiful". It would be very useful in many a Jetpunk comment.

Omni- all. potent- powerful. Therefore, omnipotent. Pitent isn't a word and therefore has no meaning.

@divantilya I don't follow your logic. English is a terribly non-phonetic language with spellings that make absolutely no sense unless you know the specific variation of the rule someone is using (ghoti for fish). When you add in things like homophones like "read" and "red," spelling variation by region, and people literally making up words all the time, you get a small picture of the many, many reasons someone might spell a word incorrectly. So, not understandable that someone might misspell a word? I think not.
+1
level 73
Jul 17, 2018
Pronunciation is a terrible word. You pronounce a word, so why isn't it pronounciation? Agree with TyrHawk, the English language is never consistent. That's why I'm all for spelling leniency - my hat's off to people who learn English as a second language. It's difficult enough as a first language.

Just a quick comment - in the sake of potentially improving the quiz. Any scientists out there? I tried both oxidisation and oxidization. I believe they are synonyms of oxidation and should be correct. Happy to be proven wrong and learn something new in the process!
+2
level 26
Dec 30, 2013
Both words are common misnomers, many dictionaries/encyclopedias will automatically redirect you to oxidation, and Wikipedia will direct you to redox for oxidisation. Every book that I have ever studied from in school has used the term oxidation, so I think that this is the correct term, final answer.

Dec 19, 2014
That's an accomplishment. The longer you can retain unfamiliarity with that specialty, the better off you are.
+1
level 73
Jul 17, 2018
Probably because there are no common words to make it familiar to you - epidermis, dermatology; gastritis, gastrology; nervous system, neurology, etc. Oncology - cancer? Just isn't the same. One has to know the root origins of the word for it to make sense - Greek onkos for mass, evolving to the Latin onco meaning tumor. As Scienceguy said, I hope you never have a reason to remember the word.

LOL I got the top 7 that most people get, so it looks like upside-down stairs. I got it like in the order of 97%, 96%, 95%, 90%, 81%, 80%, 78%, and the rest I didn't get, but it really does look like upside-down stairs the way I guessed them. But I did very bad this quiz and got only 7/22.

Shouldn't Omnificent also work for all powerful? Also agree that the clue "related to omens" is very misleading.
