Laundry is the clothes being washed...Laundromat is the place were they get washed.

Laundry can be the clothes themselves, the area, or the act. Straight from the dictionary:
1. a place where clothes and linen are washed and ironed
2. the clothes or linen washed and ironed
3. the act of laundering

There's so much potential in this quiz to have a whole set or series of them. You could do ones with genuinely tough vocab, but you could also have a lot of fun with quizzes that cover common mistakes. You touched on that a little with to, two, too, lose, loose, etc. I'd be interested to see a quiz on misused words.

Didn't realise there were decoys so I was rushing and couldn't be bothered to read the long spiel about the dictionary... Saw 'a reference book' and went straight to encyclopaedia :/
