It was Violet Beauregarde who got turned into a blueberry in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, not Veruca Salt. But at least they both start with V. :)

I always thought it was very strange that Americans think Veruca is a nice name for a person, nearly as bad as calling someone melena.

I guess they must have a different word for the foot wart thing

Who says that "Americans think Veruca is a nice name for a person"? Just because it is the character name in a fairly popular novel/film doesn't mean that everything thinks it's great.

I'm pretty sure everyone knows Veruca is a horrible name. And Roald Dahl was British.

Oy. I think many more than 23% know what "SVO" all stand for, but were totally thrown by the context, as I think it's really stretching it to expect we'd make a link to "literature"! How about expanding the clue a bit to make it clear it's talking about sentence structure/diagramming, or at least that it relates to proper grammatical format in writing?

Nope, I've never seen SVO before. I somehow managed to become a writer without learning it.

I googled SVO and got an airport in Russiaand then SVO in literature and the closest thing to literature was social value orientation All I can say is, if google doesn't see it . . .

I was surprised to see SVO on this quiz. On a linguistics quiz it would be an apt question, but it does seem out place on a literature quiz.

I agree. Maybe you could show the answer as Subject ____ Object.

Violets are blue, ancient materials, and 2 questions about Norse mythology on a literature quiz? Having trouble coming up with V answers? What about Valjean? Or the manner of creature that Bram Stoker became famous writing about?

Anyone else misread "SVO" and put "Victims" while wondering what it had to do with literature? I have no idea what SVO is, by the way.
