Most JBRish readers probably know that the suffix “ology” denotes the study of something. Well, here is a challenge…if you accept it.
BuzzFeed has an “Ology” quiz. They will present you with thirteen words ending in “ology” and you need to guess the correct area of study. I anticipated doing pretty well, but I missed three of them. I guess I have more studying to do. Is there an ology, ology?
For example, here is one of the items I did not answer correctly:
WHICH OLOGY IS THE STUDY OF HORSES?
A – Hippology
B – Hoppology
Now don’t go looking this up IF you want to accept the challenge. If you think you are an “ology” expert, you can test your knowledge here:
