About a week ago, I tried to play UNMARKETABLENESSES....I believe UNMARKETABLE was valid, but both UNMARKETABLENESS and UNMARKETABLENESSES were not accepted.

I also think PREDETERMINABLENESSES is also not currently accepted in game, but I haven't gotten that board in about two months.

EASTERLINESS and EASTERLINESSES aren't in the dictionary either, and I'm pretty sure both are valid words as well.

Why is PIANOLA not in the dictionary? I realize it started as a trademark, but so did CANOLA (found on the same board, and which scored points), and PIANOLA has been a generic word for a much longer time.

Bizarre: I scored 35 points for FUZZYHEADEDNESSES, but neither FUZZYHEADEDNESS nor FUZZYHEADED counted. (Typed each at least 3 times.)

CALLIGRAPH wasn't accepted. Merriam-Webster lists it as a verb meaning : to produce or reproduce in a calligraphic style.
(As expected)
It was definitely on the board. Coulnd't try "calligraphic" because there was only one C.

The plural BAREHEADEDNESSES was accepted, the singular BAREHEADEDNESS was not.

I just scored points for the following words:

COLORIMETER (16)
COLORIMETRIC (14)
COLORIMETRICAL (26)
COLORIMETRICALLY (30)
COLOURIMETRICALLY (32)

For some reason, the following DID NOT count:

COLOURIMETER
COLOURIMETRIC
COLOURIMETRICAL

If you're going to accept the British spelling for one of these words, you have to accept all the British spellings!

I agree about the use of COLOUR- in longer words. I tried one not long ago & was kind of upset that it didn't work. (I typed it a few times to make sure.) I finally settled for the COLOR- version.
