Love to find and try to learn what I call: Weird-Neat Words

Found one today: RUMMELGUMPTIONS

(Though commonsense may tell me to learn more of the "biggies")

Good Luck Everyone! Hope you find some of the "biggies" plus others that make you laugh.

Lol. Great one, TR!

I just got a 12-letter longest word that I am proud of despite its modest length. Previous longest word found on the board by the 28 previous players was 9 letters.

By the skillful use of your hands!

I recently missed CLAPPERCLAWING but kept my screeching to myself.

Thank you, bigbells

Not at all a long one, but.. SAIMIN.

I often try loanwords from foreign languages that I think might work, because they tend to score as rare or ultra-rare when they do work. Most of them are food items -- in this case, it's a Hawaiian noodle soup, whose name is derived from the Chinese xi mian (thin noodles). And it is in fact scored as ultra-rare.

I also got the record for word length and word score on that board with SUBSTITUTIONARY, but I'm actually more proud of having recognized SAIMIN.

I remember finding that one back in March of 2016; helped me secure 1st place for my first 24 letter word. It is a nice find and should be worth 46 points.

Speaking of my favorite word found. A few years ago I found EXEQUATUR on 4x4. It was a unique find I'd never seen before and it would've been a 22 pointer if ultra rare, unfortunately it wasn't.

ZOCALOS -- I'm REALLY surprised this is in there. (Also, it got me the highest-scoring word record on the board.)

Zocalo: a public square or plaza. The Spanish word "zócalo" actually means a plinth or pedestal, but the English word comes from the nickname of Mexico City's main square (formally Plaza de la Constitución, but colloquially El Zócalo), where a monument to Mexican independence was never completed and only a plinth was built.

I know this mostly because one of my favorite Mexican restaurants is called Zócalo.

Sometimes I'm just happy to see a word, even if it's not accepted. I just found ORCRIST.

STHENIA and STHENIC.

Also on the board were NEURASTHENIA, NEURASTHENIC, and NEURASTHENICALLY, but the root word STHENIA is a whole lot less commonly used.
