Kit-Kat wrote:"schadenfreude"
Yes, that's the word I'm looking for. It is used in English vocabulary, perhaps rarely, but it's usage is accepted in Scrabble for instance! Most of the words we use in everyday speech are derived from 'foreign' sources anyway, aren't they?
Does 'schadenfreude' come up often in your Scrabble games, Kit-Kat?

Don't know about anyone else, but I find that "First topic message reminder" at the top of each game page confusing and keep thinking I'm still on page 1.
Everyone knows the first post in the thread has the game rules, so what's the point of reminders?

Glad you pointed that out, Stardust. I was finding the same problem myself .. but thought it was just me.
I actually have it set for the first post reminder at top of each page - automatically for every thread, not just the games. (Thought it might be a help but in fact it is more of a hindrance). I'll have another look at it later this evening.

Would it be kneecap (patella), Feather?
I thought it was two words but looked it up and apparently it can also be written as a single word.

New word:
Mammal, 8 letters, A......K

Blimey, Feather, had to trawl through a musical site to find out that the thirty-second note is:
demisemiquaver (Phew, that was a very hard one!). As for palingenesis, never heard of it!

Now I'll have to find a very cryptic and obscure word to test your search and find capacities.

11 letters, clue: hash
G---------Y

Yes ... sorry, you had to do a bit of work there ... counting the dashes. cheesy

But you haven't given us a new word, Feather (?)

A settlement

Post by Stardust on 16th May 2011, 08:33

Don't know about you others but I find dots and dashes difficult to count. They're just a guide in addition to the number of letters.

A settlement = Rancherie (residential area of an Indian Reserve)

New word: 10 letters, d _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ t
conflicting
