Another short one that's gratifying to me as a musician: LIEDER. I'm just happy it's in the dictionary!

YESTREENS (16 pts). I saw YESTREEN and tried it, even though I thought it probably wouldn't work... I thought it was archaic Scottish dialect because the only place I'd seen it before was in the Scottish song "The Four Marys":
"Yestreen the queen had four Marys,
tenight she'll hae but three.
There was Mary Beaton, and Mary Seaton,
and Mary Carmichael and me.
O, often hae I dressed my queen
and decked wi' gowd her hair,
But she has gie'n me in return
a hempen scarf tae wear."

Wow kate, I never would've dreamed that would be a word. Impressive that you knew it. You know Gaelic too now???! There seems to be no end to your talents.

Not Gaelic, no. :P But I seem to have an affinity for archaic phrases and songs. I find that if something sounds poetic, it's easier to remember.

A new word that I learned and found recently has piqued my interest:

ETERNALISM, ETERNALIST, and ENTERNALISTS

All three are very interesting words.

Woo-hoo, I finally found HIRSUTE in a game, and I was the first to find it on that particular board. After meeting hundreds of "hirsute dwarf children" NPCs in the Discworld MUD game, I'm gratified that I finally found it on WordTwist.

BESNOWED
to be covered with snow.
Glad that there's none of that here. Seen too much already for a lifetime.

Nice find mcdonna. I noticed you found CHEMOTAXONOMICALLY. That's exotic. I probably would have completely missed that. My guess is you set the record for that board since I've never seen it before. Good one!

Glad that you were fulfilled finding HIRSUTE, kate. I never heard of the game you mentioned but I admit I'm not culturally hip at all.

It's not really a hip game. It's a text-based role playing game based on Terry Pratchett's Discworld series, and it's at least 20 years old, probably more. But it has a lot of hirsute dwarfs in it. More hirsuteness than I've ever encountered anywhere else.

I just got TOPLESSNESSES (24 points). I never thought of using suffixes LESS and NESSES together before, but it worked!
