    Default Linguistics Puzzles


    *Ads Disappear After 100 Posts*
    The University of Oregon has some linguistic puzzles that range from almost too easy to insanely difficult.

    They don't require too much linguistic training and are certainly puzzles rather than linguistic problem sets. They are, nonetheless, still entertaining!

    Let us know how you fared.

    P.S. I noticed some of the javascript on the a few of the problem sets seems to be a bit wonky.
