Where did you get that spelling for cacophany? I'm pretty sure the correct spelling is cacophony.

Extremely small, tiny correction for the extremely small, tiny hint - the answer has 9 letters, not 8 as stated. Great quiz though!

Genus would also fit the genre clue! Oxford definition - "(in philosophical and general use) a class of things that have common characteristics and that can be divided into subordinate kinds." Synonyms - "type, sort, kind, genre, style, variety, category, class"

The word for "adulation" was horribly confusing, as adulation is in the definition. I did not know it was also the word. Please fix that.

Correct English spelling is lacklustre. I didn't see anywhere in the instructions that spelling had to be in American English.

I believe diaspora refers to a group of people who are spread over a large area, not an exodus which is the act of a large number of people leaving one place

Great quiz though

Great quiz, espcially when learning new words. For "casual, indifferent" starting with BL, would Blasé be a valid answer as well?

Yes, but blasé only has 5 letters. The answer this quiz is looking for has 6 :-)

Got everything on my 2nd try. First time... I could have sworn I spelled virtuoso correct, 3x, but it wouldn't take it. Not sure if I was doing something wrong or if there is an error in the quiz.

Another small correction: For Kinetic it states that there are 6 letters, but it has 7.

So, you give the definition of “To cause or give rise to” for engender, but I would argue that engineer would work just as well, given its definition:

skillfully or artfully arrange for (an event or situation) to occur

and its first seven synonyms:

bring about, cause, arrange, pull off, bring off, fix, set up

And yes, I did have the good sense to check to make sure both had the same number of letters, and that both began with the same given letters 😁

I agree, 'unexpected' means, well, you don't expect it. 'Ironic' means it's funny in a way, not exactly unexpected.

Great quiz! Please accept miniscule as an alternative spelling to minuscule.

Glad you liked the quiz! :-) But I won't be accepting incorrect spellings, no matter how commonly they're made. (I myself made the 'mini-scule' mistake for a long time - realising that it was 'minus-cule' made it easier to remember.) Valid variant spellings for other words like "lackluster" and "lacklustre" on the other hand are both accepted.

How about concealed also working for covert?
