Words / Anatomical adverbs

Aurally, anally, orally etc. are all accepted as words, even common ones, but "renally" comes up as unknown. It might not be as common as those above, but it's still a word, I think.

Words / felafel v falafel

According to yesterday’s 7-by-7 the game, the former is common whereas the latter gets the italic treatment. I had always seen is spelled “falafel” and indeed, if you click on the definition for “felafel”, it says: "(less common) alternative spelling of falafel". Also, if you google “felafel” it immediately pops up with “did you mean “falafel?”.

Candidates for reclassification? I think so....

Words / Emcee v Compere

Apparently the former is "common" (despite being a phonetic transliteration of "M.C." (master of ceremonies)) whereas the later is "rare".

I guess it must be a US v UK thing...

A term with which anyone who has ever struggled with teleconferencing systems will be all too familiar, but nevertheless rejected by the 7-by-many yesterday!.
