The Daily Quest / Yelnats a cheat!

If you check when today's 7xmany puzzle opens, you will find I have the word plus 14 others within seconds.  If it was a higher scoring game I would have had more.

Just jumping the gun rather than cheating!

I had all 4 and was surprised that licenced the odd one out.

Several US and English forms of licenc/se but not licensee!

Feel better today with a rosette.

2 days ago, 2 short, accede and acceded. At least I was consistent.

1 day ago, 1 short, iciness which matches the weather! (Figuratively)

RTT queried caballero being common. The word appears quite a lot in English language publications, but on closer inspection virtually always as a proper name. Is it, nevertheless, a word that most players would know? I'm not sure, but factoring in that many would think it likely ineligible as a foreign word, I feel it should be classed as rare.

¡Gracias, señor!

Stagy and shyly did me in, but I was very distracted by Lysaght - a steel roofing maker in the town where I grew up. I  kept seeing it and missed shyly when I had slyly. I would never have got stagy without an E.

Lacuna - never heard of it and checking the definition, I am not surprised as to why!

That was my final word...

No doubt noticed the missing part.

Initialing but not initialling, and gnarl but not gnarling.

And why trailing but not trailling when we have trialing and trialling?

I would question both caballero and barcarole as common words. Ngram listed one use of caballero in text, all the others were author's surnames. I only got it because there have been so many Spanish words in puzzles lately. I would consider many of them as Spanglish.

Missed flabbily but had flabby in day before yesterday. Couldn't put flabbily in a sentence. Spell check has changed it back to flabby twice!
