Preoccupied doesn't mean distracted, does it?
Jan 20, 2017
Well, it means you're so busy with something else you don't notice anything else. So, kind of.

14/20 - and I didn't get prehead !! :(
May 5, 2017
I wonder why?
Nov 15, 2011
Preloved should definitely by accepted for used - just as valid as preowned
Aug 29, 2013
Exactly, preloved is the only term I could come up with and the only one I've heard before

I spent ages typing and RETYPING pregnant, pregnancy etc... lol
Feb 6, 2012
Am I the only one who never even heard of the word "prelapsarian"??
Feb 10, 2012
Seriously....pre-pubescent is not accepted for ages 9-12?
Feb 11, 2012
why won't this quiz accept just the part of the word that is being sought? Other vocab quizzes accept just the latter part.
Mar 22, 2012
I went to a Christian college and took theology classes and have never heard of prelapsarian..and neither has my spell check :)
Mar 25, 2012
please accept prescription for prescribe
May 23, 2012
could prehistory work for the prehistoric question, or would the phrasing of the question make my suggestion not work?
Aug 1, 2012
Prelapsarian... wow, never heard that one before. Tried a dozen permutations of premortal and similar, but to no avail :S. Thanks for the new word!
Oct 13, 2012
yeah. Prelapsarian! That one came from a very dusty dictionary ;) I tried so many things: prefall, premalus, predamnation, prepeccato... felt like a monkey with a typewriter. Love the fact that you put one word there which is nearly impossible to guess, just to taunt people :P where would the fun be without the challenge? nicely done.
Dec 22, 2012
Prior to birth I put pre-life lol... Well.. I thought it was funny
Apr 28, 2013
Surely, prior to birth you're pregnant.
May 5, 2013
More like prior to giving birth. Though... kids these days are doing things younger and younger so...
Jan 24, 2019
very few babies are pregnant before they are born
May 11, 2013
2.53 left. yay me!
Jul 4, 2013
I really shouldn't make so many presumptions
Feb 9, 2014
I think 'Premeditate' without the 'd' should be an acceptable answer. Other than that, I did really well. I like these kinds of quizzes. :)
Feb 13, 2014
For a tough spot or a pickle, precarious should be allowed?
Apr 28, 2014
Looks like a lot of people are not precocious.
Sep 16, 2014
I tried pretreatment for keeping food fresh, such as dipping apples slices in a citrus solution or blanching veggies before freezing.

"Predicate" is also a part of speech.
Jul 9, 2015
Jan 23, 2016
Preserve should be allowed for preservative I think
Apr 1, 2017
Knew it was wrong but only thing I could of for what a child prodigy is - preferred
Feb 23, 2018
I never heard the word prehensile in my life, and I have literally forgotten what it means in the time it took me to scroll down to the bottom of the comments section so I could post this comment! Maybe I am tired....? However, one thing I do know is that a predicate is not a part of speech. A sentence has a subject and a predicate. A subject is not a part of speech either. The subject tells you who the sentence is talking about. The predicate tells you what the subject is doing.
Apr 22, 2018
Could preternatural work for the child prodigy question?
Jun 14, 2018
What about predicate for a part of speech?
Dec 19, 2018
Could precariousness not be correct for predicament? And I would ve thought the preposition answer would be part of language or perhaps grammar, instead of speech. With speech I think about diphtong for instance. So not and grammar, but things to do with the mouth and pronounciation. Speaking. So it confused me and didnt think about terms for part of a sentence.
