Distraction of the day

How many of the 100 most common words in the English language can you guess in five minutes?

I got 46 of them. Care to give it a try?

via Kris, who beat me with a 52.

P.S. Don't read the comments until after you take the quiz, in case people leave some hints.

Apparently English relies heavily on prepositions, pronouns, and helping verbs. Nouns? Not so much.

44. when I saw 'number' i read it as 'numb-er'. Really? People say their more numb than others a lot? Oh, never mind.

49 and I'm totally frustrated by it! Shouldn't a third grade teacher at least get over half???
