I just got points for the plural OBJECTIVIZATIONS, but the singular OBJECTIVIZATION didn't count. (Typed it three times to make sure.)

Just got points for the plural PALEOGEOGRAPHERS but not the singular PALEOGEOGRAPHER. Tried it several times, including once slowly, so I'm pretty sure I didn't mistype it every time.

Yet another example of the same issue: the plural SURREPTITIOUSNESSES counts, the singular SURREPTITIOUSNESS doesn't.

I just scored points for:

INSTITUTIONALIZE
INSTITUTIONALISE
DEINSTITUTIONALIZE

For some reason, points were NOT given for:

DEINSTITUTIONALISE

OK, got INDISCERNIBLENESS, INDISCERNIBLENESSES and INDISCERNIBLE but not INDISCERNIBLES (there is a famous philosophy problem about the identity of indiscernibles) or DISCERNIBLES. Also no DISCERNIBLENESS or DISCERNIBLENESSES.

I just tried OTORHINOLARYNGOLOGICAL. I typed it four times, just to make sure, and afterwards convinced myself it was really there, but it didn't count. (It's in the dictionary at lexic.us.) Anybody else have this problem?

I noticed another pattern of missing words: often, when there's a set of words ending:

-OLOGIC
-OLOGICAL
-OLOGICALLY

the word ending in -OLOGICAL doesn't score.

For my word, -LOGICALLY wasn't there, and -LOGIC didn't work either. I can't imagine them putting in such a long word without some form of it working.
