Fun quiz! One thing - It would be helpful to have a note saying that proper nouns ARE allowed.

Xerox is a brand name, spelt with a capital letter - maybe that makes it sort-of proper!

But it's also used commonly as a verb, eg. "can you xerox this page for me?" This is why it's perfectly acceptable in Scrabble, which doesn't accept proper nouns.

Never heard it used as a verb, let alone commonly - where I'm from (UK) people just say "can you photocopy this?" Is using Xerox as a verb an American thing?

It's relatively common to say "can you xerox this" in the US. It's basically entered the common American language.

I've also only ever heard of it as a brand. Maybe just an American thing?

Even brand names used as a verb shouldn't be accepted. Imagine when asking someone to give you a lift, you'd say "Can you ford/honda/chevrolet me home please". And one day that would be common language too.

Some brand name nouns are also commonly used as verbs and accepted as words in their own right. Others - like Chevrolet and Ford - aren't. If you want to find out more, you could google it.

Xerox actively fights against people using "xerox" as a verb for the exact reason that it's entering common speech and that would obviate their trademark. It's a perfectly good word for a quiz like this.

Not sure if it's the same in other places, but in Canada we say Band-Aid, Kleenex, and Q-Tip to refer generically to adhesive bandage, facial tissue, and cotton swab. It may already exist, but it might be fun to have a quiz about this very topic!

Nice quiz :) I tried bushub (a station with a lot of bus traffic) a couple of times. Seems like a German thing to do (or any other language that likes to combine nouns).

Interesting, a few rare words that I didn't really know in this one. Anyway, sleuths is just a plural, am I wrong? Seems a bit easy... maybe you could find a more relevant word.

You would probably approve of the sentence "Ignorami is a word used only by ignoramuses."

I didn't even see that part. Now I'm amazed that I managed to get 22 correct after typing and backspacing so many words that didn't fit the instructions.
