A researcher gave vocabulary tests to men and women to see which words they recognized – and which words they didn’t.

These tests found there are words that most men know – that many women don’t.

Here’s a rundown of some of those words:

  • codec
  • solenoid
  • golem
  • claymore
  • mach
  • humvee
  • kevlar
  • biped 
  • dreadnought (Slate)

(I'll admit - I've only heard 2 of those words in my life!)
