"Inductivism" is in the dictionary when I type it in, but the game said it's "invalid."

I typed millenial and millenials over and over again, thinking I must have typed them wrong, but they're not considered valid. I also unsuccessfully tried millennial and millennials, or at least I'm ALMOST positive that I did.

When the game was over, I saw that the longest word anyone had gotten was premillennialism.

Interesting how some neologisms get in and others don't. I've gotten points for HANGRY, TRUTHIER, MUGGLES, SKYJACKINGS, and EUROMARKET, so I'm surprised that MILLENNIAL doesn't count. Especially because it still had a meaning even before it was used to describe the generation that began in the mid-1980s.

I hope to see the board again to verify whether or not MILLENNIAL counts. There is always the possibility that I was mistyping a letter over and over.

I'm proud of myself, DrP. I just got the longest word on a board where you previously had the longest word. That's a pretty rare phenomenon. You had POLITICALLY; I found POLYTHEISTICALLY and its shorter forms.

CONSTITUTIONALISATIONS

Took the singular but not the plural. Another missing 22 letter word. I wonder if Admin can fix these errors?

Is there any reason why SALUMI isn't included? I feel the dictionary has been rather spotty with food words, while I can reliably assume that just about any music term I try will work.

RADIOPHOTOGRAPHS was accepted, but not the singular RADIOPHOTOGRAPH.
