GRUNTLES. That settles it... you CAN be gruntled, not just disgruntled.

I assume that you have to be gruntled before you become disgruntled.

On another note, I just read on Snopes that a new Scrabble official dictionary was released today. I wonder if that will change things here.

SHAMATEUR. Good for a highest-scoring word record on the board. I'd seen the term before, in reference to college sports and Olympic sports, but didn't realize it was in the dictionary.

(Actually found it on 9/20, but accidentally posted in the thread on barely missing out on great words.)

There are so many strange words and variants to be found in this game. It's what keeps the long word hunt interesting for me.

Here are some of my recent discoveries while setting new best/long word records:
ROENTGENISATIONS 30/16 (found not long after Spike and DrP's discussion on roentgen-)
OVERINGENUITIES 28/15
BRONCHOGRAPHIES 28/15 (nothing else available to pair with -ographies. Thought it might be related to bronchial tubes.)
DISSOCIALIZING 29/14
RADIOPHONICALLY 18/15
GEOMORPHOGENIC 26/14
NARROLOGISTS 26/12 (Saw -ologists early but none of the usual suspects were to be found to add onto it. Lol'ed when this was accepted. Thought it might have something to do with narration.)

NONHOSPITAL. It makes sense as an adjective (perhaps describing outpatient treatment), but I wouldn't have thought of it as a word if I hadn't at least tried it.

Thanks for the encouragement and comment, fasteddieb. I learn multiple new words every day playing this game, although I don't necessarily remember them.
Just found another one this morning: COMPLEXEDNESSES (30/15). I was pretty astounded when it was valid.

You have dominated 5x5 avg score/game for a long, long time and have had a lot of success in avg words/game as well; yet you continue to hone your skills and learn new words. Your example inspires me.

Two with the UN- prefix: UNPRAY and UNPRAISE.

I've tried UN- on a lot of words. Sometimes it works, sometimes not. (Mostly not.) I'm surprised that it works in those two though.
