    And I think this quiz is really too easy. Folks on LJ seem to be scoring inordinately high on this. They need to throw in a few dangling modifiers, make people chew on colon vs. semicolon use, and add a few questions on the use of guttrals. :>

    Perhaps folks on LJ are inordinately smart? Anyway, there were a few questions on colon vs. semicolon use.
