Octopus should definitely be included. It's eaten in many parts of the world.

It's referring to the animal, not the food

Level 77

I agree that octopus should be allowed, it's commonly eaten. The fact that the song title isn't referring to it in a culinary context is irrelevant - that's also true of many of the other answers permitted.

Curious what is meant by least similar to English. What would disqualify languages that use a different alphabet - Russian, Greek, for example? Thanks.

It's based on lexical similarity from this calculator.

Latvian seems out of place since it is still Indo-European and probably isn't that different from Lithuanian.

Yeah it's likely a small margin. Four are obvious but then one of the remaining Indo-European languages has to be chosen.

Seconded. While walrus and blackbird might be niche dishes, submarines are definitely more common as food than octopus (even if some of the heathen refer to them as 'hoagies')

There's no film in the Disney Animated Canon that's based on The Ugly Duckling.

There actually is, unless by animated canon you mean the "Disney Animated Classics" collection which officially only includes feature-length animated movies and then only some of them.

Yes that’s what I meant. None of the movies from this list are directly based on the Ugly Duckling.

Does Basque not count? It's a co-official language in Spain, and is certainly the furthest from English.

It's not co-official nationally. It's co-official only within certain areas

I'm with you. Basque is official on some parts so it is "an official language of Spain". It does not say "official language of the Federal Government"

How did I not know that Frozen was based off Hans Christian Anderson?
+1
Level 72
Oct 15, 2020
Well, it's less "based off of" and more "vaguely inspired by." The similarities between The Snow Queen and Frozen are limited to "woman/supernatural being with cold powers" and "a person getting a shard of magic glass/ice in their eye and heart." If you didn't see the "inspired by" credit, you'd be forgiven for not realizing the stories have anything to do with each other.

I misread the clue as "languages that are at least similar to English". I thought the wording was unusual but I figured you were trying to head off complaints that some of the answers weren't close enough to English to be included. I reread the clue several times and every time my silly brain added "at" to the clue. Needless to say, none of my answers worked and I was totally confused when the answers appeared. Sigh.

Fun grammar lesson: The "vegetable other than broccoli question" (#15) is written incorrectly. By using "which", you are implying that there is one vegetable and it is Brassica oleracea. You need to use "that". It would be best written as "Vegetable other than broccoli that..." or "Vegetable belonging to Brassica oleracea other than broccoli".

What's concerning about this quiz is that 98% of the English quiz takers don't know an English number with five letters...

98% of them *do* know a five-letter number. You're misreading the stats. Only 2% didn't get that question right, which is almost certainly a representation of people who gave up or something. You only need to get to "three" to find an answer.

Can we maybe have "sprout" instead of having to write out "Brussels sprout"?

I concede that I should have just chosen "cabbage" or something...

And also, while I'm at it, "Cronos" as well as Cronus, as the -us ending is the Latinised version?

Part of it is in the Catholic Bible but it is divided up. We refer to them as Ezra (1 Esdras) and Nehemiah (2 Esdras).

3 and 4 Esdras are sometimes included in the Apocrypha.
