    You might want to note that you've used the American definition of jumper. An American jumper is a British pinafore, and a British jumper is an American sweater. That one had me stumped!

    @All The point of everything on Sporcle is not to be a race to finish. Most people don't want to be rushed or have to type frantically, and the goal of this series of quizzes was just to be light and enjoyable. Only two-fifths of people are even getting all the answers, so clearly there isn't too much time for everyone. Remember, you're not the only person who Sporcles :)

    You seriously got rid of asphyxia? According to that logic, we shouldn't use words in any circumstance that are connected with current traumatic events. Refugee? That's out. Genocide? Not a chance. Asphyxia is a word and only a word. If you choose to remember Robin Williams that way, I've got several thousand words that relate to him better than that. Here's two: comical and philanthropic. It's the context of the word, people. And it was used here as a vocabulary quiz. Think about it.

    @Sproutcm -- I suspect you might not know how to read the International Phoenetic Alphabet. One of the pronunciations on the dictionary page you provided is "fəm", pronounced "fum" -- which still rhymes with "um", but is mysteriously lacking an "r" sound (and I think you can see is highly non-standard). The middle one (främ) would rhyme with "mom" in Standard American Dialect (which is also highly non-standard). Alternate pronunciations in dictionaries do not always equate to standard usage pronunciations, or preferred/correct pronunciations. I would argue that because of how highly unusual it would be for someone to pronounce "from" so that it does NOT rhyme with "um", that it would make sense to have it as an answer. But I respect your decision to include people with differing dialects. But by your own logic, you should really make "rhumb" a bonus answer, as the "b" is not always silent.
