I saw this once before with this same word. I know that 45 is the highest that can be scored on a single word and that the scoring is based on length, rarity and use of odd letters but I'm just wondering why does it even list it as worth 46? Does it drop to 42 only because there are no odd letters? (J, K, Z etc)


Has anyone come across other words that this happens to?

Default Scoring error

It's supposed to be worth 46 points, being 24 letters. 24x2=48-2=46. The base score stops at 42 points, 22 letters. If this were fixed OVERINTELLECTUALIZATIONS would be worth 49 points. Z=3 points.

So the score showed during play is the real score while the score earned is the allowed score.

I think I remember that 22 letter being the base came up in other threads. Yes, it would be nice if that got fixed so that the ultra-big words got scored as they should!
