tcb is an unknown quantity at this point
Default HUSKLESS

Huskless is a perfectly good word. Yes it was in the puzzle; would have been the highest letter count. Given the other obscure medical, chemical, and biological terminology I've seen in puzzle word lists, one would think this much more straightforward term would be in the (somewhat oddly constructed) dictionary used in this game.

HUSKLESS does show up on lexic.us, which is the dictionary this site points you to. I don't know why it shouldn't work.

The "SOWPODS dictionary" link used to take you to lexic.us. I'm not sure when that changed, but now it goes to Wikipedia.
