How about "lents"? As in "multiples of the forty-day period leading up to Easter"?

"I give up chocolate during most lents."

Expressedly is not recognized (expressed works).

That sounds alright to me - there's an antivaccination political movement, whereas there isn't really a vaccination political movement - it's just what reasonable people do/it's the default position.

So... somehow, GOODHEARTEDNESSES counts, but GOODHEARTEDNESS and GOODHEARTED both don't.

I just found the word "feckin" in a board and it got accepted. I then wanted to see the definition of the word because I thought, "...no, really??" but it wasn't in the dictionary.
I got a referral to "fecking" and was offered some "feckin pictures". :P

It is Irish slang for what probably everyone thinks it means.

I thought as much, but I found it interesting that the game accepted it although there's no feckin entry in the dictionary.

There are many words that the game accepts that aren't in the dictionary that the site links to. Here are a few others that I've run across: BEENTO QUINO SHOUSE SHYPOO TONKA WOOSE. I don't know what any of those mean.

Here's a fun place to look up modern slang, but be aware that the definitions aren't particularly kind or appropriate:

http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=woose

I used to look up all the words I didn't know, hoping to sneak them into everyday conversation. I gave up on the list at 22 pages, since I couldn't figure out how to use words like "weet"--to know, as in, "I weet it." People don't really need a name for the handle of a scythe (a snath). Some archaisms die, and that's not bad.

Now I'm using a boggle solver to check if the longest word is the final word of the square, as when "ground" is listed and "playground" is still not mentioned yet*. If I'm lucky enough to get a big score, I can tell if it's likely to stay that way until 50 plays. (The dictionaries are not exactly the same, with nesses and lesses not used with such frequency and other differences, too.)

*Of course, that's not the compound word I found--you have to figure that out yourself!
