Quiz: Can you spell like a Scripps National Spelling Bee champion?

The English language is strikingly complicated, ask any non-native speaker. Its spelling conventions can be especially dizzying with its silent p's, i before e's except after c's and the fact that the word 'misspell' itself is so darn easy to mispell misspell.

The 90th Scripps National Spelling Bee, Wednesday and Thursday, May 31-June 1, will challenge its young competitors with some of the toughest words from English and international origins.

This year's spelling athletes include a metro Atlanta fifth-grader and students ranging from age 6 to age 15.

Yes, that's right, age 6. While some of us were getting into trouble for trying to eat paste at that age, little Edith Fuller, a kindergartner, is already a state spelling bee champion.

You’re probably thinking, “Hey, I can spell better than a kindergartner at least.” Well, take our quiz to find out.
