Quiz Questions

Once you’ve been to a few quiz nights, some of the same questions crop up: here’s a cheat sheet. Commit these to memory. If you print this out and take it with you, you’re naughty. Don’t blame us if you get caught.

This question format is known as the ‘Linguistic Equation’ or ‘ditloid’, and you can find more about them here.

NEW: If you’d like to study them before your big night, use the excellent Flashcard site/app ‘Quizlet’ – This list is also available as a Quizlet card ‘set’.

NEWER: You might also like to try the inscrutable ‘Ditloid Droid‘ which purports to have many more solutions available, if you can figure out how to query it.
