Understatednesses was accepted, but not the singular form understatedness.

I tried typing it over and over just to make sure I didn't make a typo.

Accepted on one board:

CRYSTALISATION (16)
CRYSTALISATIONS (18)
CRYSTALLISATION (14)
CRYSTALLISATIONS (30)
RECRYSTALLISATION (20)
RECRYSTALLISATIONS (34).

Not accepted:
RECRYSTALISATION
RECRYSTALISATIONS

If you're going to include an alternate valid spelling of "crystallisation", then that should apply to all the words derived from it!

BARCODES is accepted; BARCODE isn't.

OMBUDSWOMANSHIPS yes, OMBUDSWOMANSHIP and OMBUDSWOMAN no. Some of these are bizarre.

Just had a board that accepted INSTITUTIONALISATION but not the plural INSTITUTIONALISATIONS.

I'm pretty sure it's not because any letters are missing. The board is:

OITLN
NAIAL
QSSNS
UTOSN
TIITI

So I got credit for the words:

PALEONTOLOGIST
PALAEONTOLOGIST
PALEONTOLOGISTS
MICROPALEONTOLOGIST
MICROPALAEONTOLOGIST
MICROPALEONTOLOGISTS
MICROPALAEONTOLOGISTS

But somehow, PALAEONTOLOGISTS didn't count. This looks like a clear omission.

Another "-ness" singular missing.

I got credit for:
UNWORKABLE (10), UNWORKABLENESSES (31)
WORKABLE (8), WORKABLENESS (18), WORKABLENESSES (21)

I typed UNWORKABLENESS several times and it didn't count.

Wow, I just read the whole thread as I hadn't seen it before. So frustrating when you're trying to play those words in the middle of a game. Does administration ever add any of the missing words?

No letters of INSTITUTIONALISATIONS is missing from that board.
