A list of words most frequently looked up by New York Times readers. I know most of them but a few (e.g. immiscible, Manichaean) totally escape me.
Is this an indication of elitism on the part of NYT writers that they actually use these words or is it a refreshing admission by readers of The Gray Lady that they’re not as smart as they think? Or that they’re smart enough to ask for help when they don’t recognize a word?
How many do you know?
