The Years' 11-12 spelling list contains over 1000 words, there are too many to list here. You can download the complete list from the above website (free and you don't have to fill out any forms or register, just click on the download section).

These are less frequently used words but have been compiled based on their relevance to essay writing and character analysis. Students in senior years need to know how to spell these words competently.

Here's an example of some of the words you will find on the list:

Acronym, anecdote, camaraderie, clich, colloquial, ebullient, epiphany, euphemism, hyperbole, innuendo, juxtapose, metaphor, narrative, rhetoric, oxymoron, paradox, parody, protagonist, raconteur, rhetoric, self-deprecating, simile and vernacular to name but a few.
