lol, good for you kate. I don't mind sharing the wealth; there seems to be lots for everyone. Just please don't take my 45 pt record before I get to it.

This is pretty crazy kate. (sort of a pun there, haha) I just played THALASSOGRAPHER for 28 pts and 2 records! I would've never found that if you hadn't blazed the trail. Thanks. It's funny that when you drop the -er it's invalid. I did try playing LASSOGRAPHER but apparently there is no study of roping livestock.

Nice catches, Kate & Lalatan! It's fun to learn new words from y'all.

Even lexic.us doesn't know what a THALASSOGRAPHER is and Google tried to tell me I really wanted to search for THALASSOGRAPHY, but Merriam Webster was clued in. Another word added to my vocabulary!

I can't believe this scored points, but: DUNDERHEADISMS.

Wait, stupidity is a school of thought now?

Looked up DUNDERHEADISM and found that Edgar Allen Poe used it in the prologue to his Tales of the Folio Club:

Quote:
THE Folio Club is, I am sorry to say, a mere Junto of Dunderheadism. I think too the members are quite as ill-looking as they are stupid. I also believe it their settled intention to abolish Literare, subvert the Press, and overturn the Government of Nouns and Pronouns.

Lalatan! Just set a new record where you held it with POLYMERIZATIONS (31/15). Found COPOLYMERIZATIONS (35/17).

It's rare that I can beat one of my heroes.

And in the next game I was stumped. I came up with -ACOLOGICALLY but couldn't put the first part together.

Thinkbig won with NEUROPHARMACOLOGICAL (38/20). But if you ever see it again, according to http://www.dictionary.com/browse/neuropharmacology, NEUROPHARMACOLOGICALLY is a real word. (Of course Wordtwist may disagree!)

Good for you mcdonna! Nice find! I know all too well that I can be beaten. I do have dunderheaded moments. Today I played a board that had very few long words so I was pleased with myself when I found DISSECTIONS. Earlier I noticed mirco- but couldn't find any pairing for it. Right after time expired, I realized I could've played MICRODISSECTIONS! So I gave away those records.

I'm almost certain I tried the -cally word and it wasn't valid. My MO would be to spot cally first and try it. But thanks for the intel.
