Wordrobe is a set of language games, created by the linguistics department, in order to crowd source linguistic information. This provides a lot of data from thousands of questions. It is assumed that the true answer is given by the majority. This thesis uses confidence intervals for a binomial proportion to determine the certainty on the true answer. In addition, it can be determined at what moment in time there is enough data. Furthermore, generalized linear mixed models are introduced. The logistic model, including random effects, is applied to the data. For this model, the effects on answering a question correctly are described. This leads to measures for the skill of players and difficulty of questions.
