After not finding anything to pair with the lucrative -izations suffix I saw that -zing was also available. Didn't find anything with that for a while either until I spotted CONSCIENT. I tried CONSCIENTIZING and it worked! 29 pts, 2 records. Well, that word is a beaut. After it was submitted I tried to see the definition but lexic didn't have it so I left it at that.

Too late, as the game ended I spotted MOCKUMENTARIES, and thought to myself, would it be funny if that was in their lexic.us dictionary. It is.

Zeno, I think this thread you started way back when is 1 of the best in this forum. So much wacky word weirdness to read about and share.

BETTERNESSES. Self-explanatory, but I'm surprised it's an actual word.

After getting COSMOPOLITANISMS and all the shorter words contained in it, I saw COSMOPOLIS and was a bit surprised to get points for it... as you may expect, it's a large diverse city.

Default A dainty morsel!

I'll never surprise myself or any of you by randomly finding or guessing some super long word (I think my all time best on 4x4 is a 9 letter word, maybe 10?), but I did manage to see sucket and typed it in on a whim, only to have it score. There must have been some seldom used part of my brain that recognized the word for a dainty morsel.

I love odd words like sucket, regardless of length. Lalatan was kind enough to mention that I opened this thread, and if you go all the way back, you'll find my first word was sexpert, which means pretty much what you would think it should mean. Since then lalatan, spike, doc and kate have run with it. A lot of their crazy words come from knowing roots and being comfortable with longer words, and then swapping out, or adding or subtracting part of the word, and discovering that someone, once upon a time, found that variation useful enough, and it was acknowledged to be a word. So if you know conscientious, why not try conscientizing. It just might work, and apparently it did. The nice thing about the thread is sharing the amusement you feel when it works. I suspect that the thread is also used for ideas for finding such words. Maybe duplicitizing is also a word! (Regrettably no)

I'd guess that ZINCY is a word too. Anyway, maybe that's a good word for ZINCOPHILES or something.(I can't remember the last conversation I had about zinc, although it probably had something to do with pot metal or galvanized pipe.)
