I'm disappointed that spacelessness isn't a word.

I just got COMPUTATION and COMPUTATIONAL, but COMPUTABLY was rejected.

I'm embarrassed to say that I missed COMPUTATIONALLY.

There are at least a few missing words that end in -ness, where the plural (-nesses) is accepted. MegaWord has encountered them several times. I've run into one or two.

if realness and realnesses are words, so should surrealness and surrealnesses be!

It doesn't appear that DEMIS or DEMI are stand-alone words. At any rate they're not accepted in any Scrabble dictionaries I could find.

Why is EELER (or EELERS) not accepted, as in a fisherman who catches eels? I don't have a physical dictionary handy, but it shows up on multiple online dictionaries, and it comes up in crossword puzzles all the time, for what that's worth.

And I know this one has been mentioned before, but the number of times I see GEAS and can't use it is really starting to bug me.

Just got a longest word in 5 x 5: PREVAILINGNESSES, but PREVAILINGNESS wouldn't take. It's doubtful to me that there's any sound reason for one being included but not the other.... just one o dem thangs methinks.

STELLATION and STELLATIONS are rejected, although they're perfectly good words in geometry. STELLATION even has its own Wikipedia page.

The board that I played had CONSTELLATION, but I missed it.
