THESES cost me a rosette, but miles off a maven.

missed PUSSES, cost me a rosette. Particularly annoying as I played pusser and pussier.
Mike marches on, the only one of the club to get a rosette, well done.

my downfall was missing LESSEE and senselessness.
BLUENOSE is also a derogatory term applied to Birmingham City FC supporters. I played it more in hope than expectation.

Me too.
I missed a Maven and Rosette by thinking I had played CATTILY and not checking carefully enough.
My prediction for Mikes 50 rosettes is still looking good.

I found the LINEARLY game quite difficult and didn't get the rare big word INLAYER.
RM continues to show an amazing vocabulary and I think Mike will top 50.

I played RECOPY but missed RECOPIES.
Glad it was rare.

I started playing Chi 9 years ago today. I cannot remember what I did before I got addicted to this wonderful word game.
Although I don't regularly contribute to the Forum I do follow it every day, it is more interesting than the news and certainly not as depressing.
Many thanks to Alan, you help keep my brain active.

On COUNTDOWN in the UK Dr Susie Dent, the lexicographer, tells us the hyphen is on its way out and many words that used to be hyphenated no longer are.
Perhaps we should follow Mikes suggestion as he is the nearest thing to a lexicographer we have in Chi.

out of the 340 players 42 spelt it CESAREAN and 43 CAESAREAN.
I was the one that missed the alternative spelling.
I also missed SENESCENCE and CENSUSES.

Just one of those days.
