I can't imagine that this hasn't been brought up before, but how the heck is FREENESS not a word?

Anyone else try words that sort of seem plausible, but you don't really believe they exist, on the off chance that they do?
I've had some positive surprises with that method, but it appears that LUPORASTY was truly too far-fetched.

Apparently, BEGGER and BEGGERS aren't in the dictionary...unless BEGGAR is the correct spelling...I would've thought BEGGER would've been valid too XD

ERONR
ATSAR
GSNUL
OEUTS
CDEOC

COUNTERASSAULT plays
COUNTERASSAULTS plays
COUNTERASSAULTED does not play

So it's not a verb? Like, a thing happened, but nobody did it? Sounds like the dictionary is being run by a crack team of corporate lawyers and kindergarten bullies...

Have I lost it, or are the words really there?

TDHRS
LEYSA
RDETN
OHNRI
CLOLT

would not accept

hydrochlorinate
hydrochlorinates
hydrochlorinated

not sure about
dehydrochlorinate\s\d

Kept trying to be sure I was typing hydrochlorinate correctly and didnít see it in time to try it.

http://www.merriam-webster.com/dicti...ydrochlorinate

hydrochlorinate
transitive verb hy∑dro∑chlorinate
Popularity: Bottom 10% of words

Definition of hydrochlorinate
: to treat or combine with hydrochloric acid or hydrogen chloride hydrochlorinate rubber

hydrochlorination \"+\ noun

Been struggling a bit on some of the Sci-Tech-Medical words lately. Started listing, learning and relearning to overcome the problem.

I may be taking this too seriously, because tears came to my eyes over this... and I felt totally defeated for a good while.

Still having problems with words I should get, and still feeling defeated.

So.. I going to try to lift those bootstraps and have some fun while I play!
Good games to all,
TR

HYDROCHLORINATED isn't in there -- it requires using the same D twice. But otherwise it's a valid point.

Thank you, DrPlacebo

I tried the "d" after several tries on the singular and plural. Twas a bit frazzled, but its just as likely I didn't notice.

You've got some great boards out there. Good games and fun play to you!

ORIGINALISM and ORIGINALIST don't count? That's odd considering how much those things have been talked about in relation to the US Supreme Court lately.

I got points for ABORIGINALISM, so ORIGINALISM was definitely on the board.

Also, if ABORIGINALISM counts, why doesn't ABORIGINALIST?
