CAVALERO/CAVALEROS -- seems to be an alternate form of "cavalier" that came from the Portuguese "cavaleiro" or Spanish "caballero" rather than the French...

Nice find DrP.

Some time ago I played DEXTEROUSNESSES, mainly because DEXTROUSNESSES wouldn't work. I had never encountered the alternate spelling for it.

On another board I recently played CORTICOTROPHINS and surprisingly it was valid. I found each half separately and since there was nothing else I joined them together. You likely know its meaning. I didn't even look it up because I'd forget it anyway.

Oh, here's another short one that I, uh... SORTA didn't expect to get points for.
